I love this scarf, it turned exactly as I wanted. I had bought a new autumn jacket and didn’t have a scarf that would look right with it. I wanted something simple and practical that I could wear on a day to day basis. The scarf is soft, smooshy and warm but not bulky. I have already cast on some mittens in with the leftover yarn, in fact I have finished one and am 1/3rd through the second.

Great quick knit, definetely planning more.
The only trouble with this is I am not sure it is neutral enough. It is for Karl’s niece or nephew (due sometime next month) but we are unsure whether this is suitable for boy. Would love to hear your opinions on whether you would dress a boy in these colours.
I am so pleased with these and hope Mum likes them too. I am not seeing her on Mother’s Day but Saturday instead. The small ball of yarn in the picture is all I had left – talk about knitting by the seat of my pants. i was really worried I would run out of yarn, but luckily I had just enough.
Happy St David’s Day to any Welsh readers!
If anyone is interested Kat has put a picture od Lily wearing the Peadpod sweater set I sent as part of the Hot Cocoa swap.
Go to her blog here to see.
Once I had completed this I knew I wanted pale wooden toggle buttons and to my surprise I found the perfect ones in John Lewis. This is now my favourite sweater.
This has been knit for my Hot Cocoa Swap pal’s little girl. I knit the 6mths size, even thought he baby is only 3mths as I wanted her to grow into it and get as much wear from it as possible. More photos and the hat can be seen on flickr or ravelry.
