A recent bout of flu left me sitting on the sofa watching Miss Marple re-runs. Just the kind of mindless tv you need when you are under the weather. I was scrutinizing all the lovely costumes and then a cute little wrap over scarf caught my attention, I had some really nice drips brushed alpaca silk lying around and I decided it was the perfect yarn.
A quick search on Ravelry turned up a few patterns but nothing just right for this yarn and as usual I cannot leave a good pattern alone – I just had to tweak and change to suit my yarn and also my notion that the loop was just not working. Finally finished I am happy with the result. This will be great for the knitting class in September – I just need to re-do and make a pattern out of my very hard to read notes.
So with the scarf completed what next – a little raspberry beret to complement the scarf of course. Other than casting on 130 stitches (I think!) I am not sure what happened next – another rework.
