Ran out of yarn!

It’s been a busy summer, and so I’ve not really looked at my needles very much. Yesterday, I didn’t have much to do, so I thought I’d get myself back into the routine. I decided to grab a ball of yarn that’s been sitting in my basket for nearly 18 months and turn it into something pretty and useful. The nights are closing in, slowly but surely, and it won’t be long before everyone’ll be wanting something chic and unique to put round their necks.

Unfortunately, this ball of yarn was not really large enough …photo

So, it goes round my neck about one and a half times. It can be fastened with a brooch I suppose, although I’ll probably add a button or two and wear it that way. Otherwise, I like this yarn! Just wish I had a bit more of it (I’m not even sure where it came from…)

I’m going to make a few more scarves to get back into a good rhythm. If anyone has a nice pattern with interesting stitching, I’d like very much for you to share it in the comments below!

About Knoob

Well ... I'm thirtyish, female, mostly British, and skirmishing occasionally with depression. I though that taking up a useful and practical new hobby might help me develop a healthy work/life balance. I failed to anticipate how frustrating learning to knit would occasionally prove. But I shall persevere in the face of adversity!
