A busy busy week at work has meant no time for blogging and only a few snatched minutes to read my favourite blogs.
But during the hour each evening, when I have forced myself to sit down, I’ve finished my ANGEL crochet scarf by Amanda Perkins.
Here is her’s
And this is mine.
It is not quite perfect. I have seemingly forgotten my intention to keep the stitches as loose as possible and along the way my scarf has got tighter and tighter.
I paid £2 pounds for the pattern. It was incredibly simple but I had not the patience to work it out myself and who am I to deny just £2 to the designer who spent the time to post it on Ravelry.
I’m just going out to a fabulous new wool shop I discovered recently to buy some similar kettle dyed merino sock wool. I’m making another for my mum for Christmas but will make it twice as wide to be extra luxurious and keep an eye on the tension.
If it’s quiet I’ll take some photos around the shop. It is truely an Aladdin’s cave. A place to go for just very special projects.
Love, Lucie. Xx
