I've been off work sick all week, and have basically spent my time knitting and tv watching, cos my brain can't cope with much more taxation  Roll Eyes  Luckily I bought some wool last week in a fit of stash satisfaction, and I used it all up in a couple of hours on this  Grin  It was the perfect sick knit!  Low concentration, quick and satisfying, and really silly so it was fun.

It is made up of Sirdar Bigga and Sirdar Fizz, with the Fizz knitted with the Bigga for 6 rows at a time (on 10 stitches, which made up a width of 6 and 3/4 inches), and it is long enough to wrap round the neck fully once and hang down to the waist.  The Fizz was so thin that it carried up the side with no probs.  Both wools are so soft that they are really nice against the skin.  Perfect for a quick fix!

Now that I'm feeling better, I'll have to finish off a scarf in noro kureyon that I promised as a birthday pressie - it twists too much for me to have been bothered with it, so friend will be wondering how I managed to get a new scarf for me but not for her!


Feedback is very welcome Smiley

I am so boring I think people should be interested in me.

Cute, cute, cute.  I must have one for myself!  Thanks for posting the pic and directions. I hope you are feeling better.

Thank you for the well wishing Booglass Smiley  It was a good therapy scarf!  And it is just one of those colds that won't go away - one of those things that the doc tells you is a virus and can't prescribe anything for it.  Back at work next week I think Sad

And may I add, it is my first scarf.  I started young knitting animals, left knitting for quite a while (about 13 years), and came back to it a couple of months ago.  I started big and am going smaller - started with the SnB Sack sweater, have finished knitting but need to make up the charm bag, and have plans all over the place!  A scarf seems like a bit of a relaxation thing after all the making up the jumper too (I hate stitching the bloomin things together!).
