The yarn is a super luxurious sock yarn called Jawoll Magic Degrade which comes in 18 different colour choices but I opted for a subtle Heather Moorland palette. You may recall this yarn was my holiday knitting project but my brain must have been elsewhere because when I got home there were just too many mistakes in it to carry on so I changed tack. The centre line had gone completely astray, the stitch count was miles out and can you see that hair grip, that is holding a dropped stitch!
I used the Ravelry search engine to search the yarn rather than a pattern and it turned up trumps with this project. A great way to find the right pattern for the right yarn in the right quantity, you should try it. This project uses one ball.
Quick little flowers emerge which are joined as you go along. It was a great little project for travelling on the go or for doing two flowers a night whilst not over crocheting my injured arm.
About half way through making it I decided to treat myself to some blocking pins, well why the hell not? I have been blocking work for myself much more lately to get a better finish and it was certainly needed with this scarf. Look...
It is quite short, a decorative kind of attire but Little M loved it so it is now hers. Just the right size for a child and matches her eyes beautifully.
So what have we learnt today?
Knitting doesn't make itself right no matter how much you hope
Ravelry yarn search is a super discovery
Jawoll Magic Degrade is a beautifully soft yarn
Children like allsorts
A little crochet everyday is good for the soul
Little things make big things
Thanks Minerva for such fine quality wool.
