:: scarf idea I’m playing with
I want to make a scarf in rich colours with wavy lines. I’ve not got it quite right yet – the one above uses a variation of feather-and-fan stitch, but won’t sit completely flat. More playing, more fiddling.
I wanted to make this hat using some lovely soft alpaca/wool that Sally gave me, but it wasn’t the right weight. So I just had to riff off the pattern and do my own thing – I think it came out pretty well, though not as slouchy as the original, and the softness of the alpaca is a bit wasted on a knobbly texture.
And thinking about winter, about tweedy pants and a boiled wool coat, a velvet jacket and a soft wool vest. If only it wasn’t so hot…
