A very out of season knitting update...

Summer is here and so is my scarf! Truth is, I actually finished it not long after I posted my last update but it was already too warm for me to wear it...so it sat in my knitting bag until I finally tidied the ends. So at least I'm prepared for next winter!


It's so snuggly, I love chunky scarves. I used two balls of mega chunky Sirdar Denim Ultra in Starling. The neutral colour will go perfectly with all my coats.


I'm really pleased with how it turned out, the stitches are pretty even, although it did get a little loose around where I started the second ball of yarn. Also next time I make a scarf I want to look at doing a fringe finish, I'm not so keen on how blunt the ends are. But I really enjoyed knitting it and it's the first piece of knitting I have ever finished! I've moved on to a couple of new projects, including the aforementioned blanket! I felt daunted about such a big project but it's actually the perfect chance for me to try out different stitches and work on my technique. I've done 5 squares so far, they're definitely not perfect but I'm hoping the practice will help - I have a feeling it will be a looong time before this is finished!


Out of all the stitches I've tried so far the moss stitch is my favourite...so I got distracted and decided to make a cushion cover to match a beautiful throw we were given at Christmas! Sadly a few other things have had to take priority recently but I'm hoping to finish it soon :)


Hopefully there will be more knitting updates making an appearance on the blog soon...do you knit? I would love to hear what projects you have on the go!

Happy Monday!
