Hello, how nice of you to stop by. And thank you for your comments. I always love to read them; they are a kind of bonus for blogging.
A couple of years ago, I wanted to learn how to knit with 2 strands; the Fair Isle technique. So I started a kind of sampler, using patterns from Alice Starmore’s Book of Fair Isle Knitting.
After a number of patterns, I knew how to knit this way, and I started to work on other projects, leaving this sampler in a dark corner of a drawer. When I started to work on my new Bird Jacket, I remembered about this sampler, and I thought it would be a good idea to finish that one first. So I knitted some patterns extra, until the length was about 165 cm, and with the Kitchener stitch I joined top and bottom
So, now I have this super warm infinity scarf. I used only 4 colours, (blue, green, yellow and pink), and every colour in 3 shades; light, medium and dark. This gave me more than enough options to vary, without becoming messy, but holding its balance.
Never thought I would say this, but now I’m looking forward to a very cold winter!
