Been Knitting

I saw this easy to knit scarf on Jannimary's blog and decided to make one as well. I found some chunky red and white wool yarn (at Lincraft) and bought some lovely size 8 bamboo knitting needles. It only needed to be eight stitches wide using this type of wool. I used two 50g balls of wool and having about two-thirds of a ball left over. It is one long length, with a twist and both ends stitched together to make a circle.

I am glad I made this warm scarf now, as the weather has certainly got a lot cooler here, (even in sub-tropical Queensland). Dash, (the big sook), came over for a cuddle.
Cheers,
Sandi xx

Lovely scarf Sandi! we have had a slow start to winter here but it is wet and cold today - I had better get my needles out!

Great idea to twist the scarf, makes it unusual.

I'm just catching up on reading blogs and was flattered that you had made the scarf. Yours looks great - nice and snuggly.
