Scavenger Hunt

A bit of finishing off.

Hi there.  Thanks for popping by.

I had a quick dive into my pile of half finished projects the other day an pulled some out to complete.

Firstly a stripy scarf made in Sublime Woolly Merino.  I got four balls ~ two green and two purple from the Ally Pally Show in 2012.  I wouldn't usually go for a boucle yarn but this is very soft and not bad to work with.  I used 6mm needles and just knit stocking stitch, I didn't mind about the edges rolling.  The stripes are random.
 I carried the non-working yarn up the edges. 
 Also a pair of Bella's Mittens.  I started these to use up some Sirdar Hug that had been hanging around in my stash for ever.  This is a nice easy pattern, which is better if you actually follow the pattern and not think you've got it.  Some rows I cabled every 5 rows, some 6 rows and some 7!
 I noticed this when I came to the next mitten and, as I wasn't going to frog back the whole mitten, I had to match it!  Anyhoo I'm pleased with them.

 The weather around these parts has cheered up slightly ~ we have seen the sun ~ but rain is still a large part of it.
The other morning Miss Clicky went for a horse hide with me ~ as always ~ walking along.  The horse is happier with someone to follow!
We went for about 5 miles and left in lovely sunshine so we didn't take anoraks.  About half way round an ominous black cloud appeared...
 ...and sure enough it started raining.  We were soaked to the skin, even to our knickers.
Then the sun came out and a double rainbow appeared.
So, that's me for now, you never know there might be some more projects to show soon!

See you soon, have fun.

  1. Love the scarf and the mitts!!! Not sure I'd get much mileage out of them here with our 35+C degree temps at the moment!! Much love. x

  2. Thanks for showing your carrying yarn on the edge...I think that is what I am supposed to do with the blanket that I am knitting. I think your mittens look perfect! [even though you confessed the jog you took in the pattern] I am glad that you and your daughter, the horses and the camera survived being drenched. I have seen very few double rainbows in my lifetime and I enjoyed seeing yours! xx

  3. The edge is quite neat, just catch it every row. The walk was going fine, until the rain!

  4. First you show us that beautiful scarf then make our eyes pop out with those gorgeous mittens. Well done!


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
