Another knitting post

I've (almost) finished another scarf (just a few ends to tidy away). It's taken far longer then it should have done because I kept getting distracted by other things, but it's done, its in good time for the recipients birthday, and I'm pleased with it.

I couldn't get a decent picture on my phone and under electric light, which is a pity because the whole point of the thing was the texture in it. I wanted it to be vaguely reminiscent of gloomy North Sea weather and waves on the beach. When D, the only person to see the finished article so far, had a look at it that was the first thing he said so I think that counts as a success.

Waiting to be blocked - which has to be my least favourite part of the process.


  1. It looks good so far and, as you know, will look even better after blocking. You can do it!

  2. I can do it, but I don't much enjoy it. Results are worth it though, so I'm prepared to suffer the aches that come from spending an hour on hands and knees!
