It's a garter stitch 'Twistie' scarf, and the pattern said 'super for trendy pub knitting'!! I thought it might be something fun for my first time at knitting group this week. It was a great evening, and good to spend time with other people who share my interest in all things woolly!
I have frogged my Noro stripy scarf, with some reluctance. It was really hard to admit that I didn't like the way the colours looked against each other. In their separate balls, they were truly gorgeous. But in the alternating stripes, the scarf appeared drab and dull, and so un-Noro-like, that I knew I'd never wear it. So I am on the lookout for a new colour combination.
My stashbusting is going well so far, and I am enjoying using up some of the beautiful yarns I have in my stash. I'm putting £1 into a pot for each ball of yarn knitted, and will use that to buy yarn at I Knit and/or Ally Pally later in the year. Mr Josiekitten and I are off for a day in London at the end of the month, and I had planned a visit to I Knit, telling Mr JK that there was a licensed bar there to keep him happy while I browsed. But that's now off the agenda, as I don't want to be tempted!
