So I was reading this blog and I was reminded of reading Pippi Longstocking as a child. I imagined knowing her and being her - although sadly my memories of her tales are long forgotten.
But I was inspired to create a scarf from all of the small balls of wool that come as free gifts from knitting magazines. I have had them piled up in my unit - not sure what to make with them until now!!!
I laid all the balls out in lines of colour and selected fairly randomly what I was going to use.
As it was all DK, I picked up my 4mm needles and cast on 30sts.
I worked in one colour haphazardly chosing the stitch pattern :- rib, garter, stst, moss, etc
To finish off the scarf I did a row of single crochet, then treble, then chain stitch which I attched at every 3rd st.
I really like it...it's bright and cheerful. Think I'll make another!!!
Dressmaking and some knitting.
