Earlier this month the lovely husband and I went on a trip up north to see his brother and sister for his brother’s stag party. Sister and I went to John Lewis as you do and I acquired (magically – I really don’t know how it happened!) two skeins of turquoise Debbie Bliss pure silk and a promise to make a scarf for SIL. As it is said brother’s wedding on Thursday (leaving SIL the only unmarried one in the family) I thought she could do with a treat so last Thursday I cast on the seaweed and shells scarf as chosed by you the faithful reader (well Jill anyway) and the lovely husband. After some intensive knitting this:
Has become this:
It has used just about all of the two skeins and knits up beautifully – I forsee more projects in Debbie Bliss pure silk – it is so soft and so drapy. The finished size was about about 6 inches wide and 53/54 inches long. The pattern is called Seaweed and Shells and is available here. Just got to hope the SIL likes it – we will find out tomorrow!
Even more impressivly – two blue projects in the appropriate month – for me that has to be some sort of record!
In other knitting news the minty aqua socks are getting along nicely and I have the blue/purple ones lined up for July as soon as I (a) finish the current socks and (b) wind the yarn into balls – (grr!)!
