I do like the obligatory "scarf disguised as a sausage roll" shot.
I used a 4mm hook (smaller than I usually use for DK yarn), Mary Maxim Prism yarn in Still Waters and this Spring Ripple pattern. I enjoyed every minute of making it, it's a lovely pattern and the colours are really pretty.
When finished it looked rather wavy...
But I gave it a good blocking using my pretty pins and trusty Tesco playmats...
So now it smells great and looks neat and tidy, ready to be packed and sent. Blocking with a kitten around is not easy though, he seemed determined to impale himself on the pins.
I carried on going until I had nearly finished the yarn and so that both ends of the scarf are matching turquoise, I do like matching ends.
I have found it hard to resist getting going on another one straight away using the other colour of this yarn but I have a little something to finish off first, I should have that ready to share on Friday. It's rather a fiddly amigurumi and I'm still having to be careful as my finger cramps up when I'm working very tightly so it seems to be going on for ever, it's very cute though.
Thank you all for your kind comments about my little owls, they really are very quick and easy and they go down a storm, you should try them.
I wanted to mention as well that for some reason not all of the blogs I follow are showing up in my sidebar here. I have checked and rechecked and there doesn't seem to be any reason for it, I can only apologise, you know if I visit you regularly because I try and leave comments. I will tackle it again at some point and try to work it out.
