Now the hat I wanted to make to go with this scarf became my next project.
Last Tuesday (or was it the Tuesday before) Anne came to the craft group with three balls of yarn which she didn’t want and I brought in some fabric too. It was a great coincidence as amongst the fabric was some that she liked and the balls of yarn became a very good swop for both of us!!! The pink (well it’s darker than it looks on this picture) is a great match for the scarf. Luck’s on my side with this project already.
I thought that knitting a hat with a rib (knit one, purl one) would be very slow using the continental method but in fact it turned out to be pretty fast. The video that I found most useful is this one and you’ll notice she knits into the back of the stitch. This (for me) makes it much easier to purl. I’m not sure why but that’s the way it is!!!
You know what I’ll be doing for the next day or two - knitting!!!!
