Yarn: Rowan Silky Tweed in Mardigras colourway
1 year after casting on this scarf I finally finished it. This is the third FO in my quest of finishing poor old and neglected WIPs (first were some vanilla socks and then the Rye mitts) and it feels good to have this done. Mainly because near the end I was bored out of my mind doing the same pattern repeat over and over every day. I guess this is also not so surprising if you know that this scarf ate 6,5 skeins (some 800+ meters). Cables for days, quite literally.
This isn’t a colour I usually find myself knitting with, but I’m happy with it. This way I can pretty much combine it with anything and it goes with all of my coats, so good chances this will get worn all winter round (or at least as soon as it gets cold, it was 21 degrees celsius today, insane for November!). The yarn is a mix of wool and silk and feels just perfect for a comfy scarf like this. Even though it was tempting to make it a lot shorter, I’m happy with this length. I can quite literally mummify myself in cables and we all have these occasional moments in which the urge for cable mummification become overwhelming.
Now even though I was hoping to finish up one more WIP in a row, the urge for new cast ons has just become too overwhelming. So I do plan to still finish my Northmann mittens before the end of the year, but for now they’ll be neglected just a tad bit longer. Everyday I spend more and more time wandering around my stash, squishing yarns, looking at patterns. There’s only so much strength one knitter can muster.
