This scarf took a good while to knit up as the wool is so bobbly and I totally overtightened when I cast off. But my Mum caught sight of it on her recent stay with us and remarked how lovely it was so it's now gone home with her and I also have new instructions on how to not overtighten when casting off Cheesy



Closer shot to show the wool.

Thank you Smiley
The wool according to the label is - Mardis Gras Fashion Wool by Robin Wools.  I picked up about 5 balls of it from my local thrift shop ages ago.  I'm terrible for always spotting odd balls of wool there.

I love how specialty ayrn looks but Uuuuurgh isnt it death to knit with?  And yeah.  About 5 projects in I adopted my cast-off motto "There is no such thing as a too-loose cast off"  or at least I havent done one yet.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

That's a good motto, I will definately have to adopt that one Cheesy  And yes fashion wool looks lovely but it a pain in the backside to knit with LOL
Thanks for everyone's lovely comments.  I've knitted something today that I've never knitted before and I'm so proud of myself but I daren't share here because it's for one of the swaps I'm in and I don't want to spoil my partner's surprise.  I'll be back Wink
