WIP Wednesday ~ June 17th

Another 'Work in Progress Wednesday' and it is that bleak outside that I almost could not be bothered to go out to take a photo of my new scarf. I braved the chill because I like this scarf and thought I would show it off!

It was knitted in a day using 12mm needles and 100g of 12ply 'Slummy' Merino. I loved the colours which is why I bought it.

What makes it interesting is that I cast on 105 stitches, then knit 11 rows in garter stitch. This means that when I am wearing it the weight of the scarf does not pull it out of shape so it hangs so beautifully! It was worth braving the cold to take a photo so I could share that with you :)

In other knitting news, I am halfway through my Tea Cosy. Other jobs (such as my scarf) keep getting in the road but I am home alone tonight so am determined to cast on the other half...


  1. Looks great - well done. I love the colours. I hear you on other things getting in the way - I really want to sew, but this weather keeps calling back to the warmth of the couch with the needles in my hands.

  2. Wow,you knitted a scarf in a day!it will take me at least 6 months.

  3. Those colours look wonderful together. Did they pool at all in the scarf? A v. nice scarf : )
