|"Not Noro Striped Scarf" in Rowan Tapestry|
Yarn: Rowan Tapestry, 2 balls each of colours SH 170 Country and SH 176 Whirlpool
Size: 5" x 88"
Knit up in Rowan Tapestry ~ "a modern blend of wool and soybean protein fiber; the yarn has a slightly felted look. It is soft and has a gentle drape. This self-striping yarn knits up into stripes that shade subtly from one to the next." Tapestry is discontinued but still available in some yarn shops and on ebay for really reduced prices. It's a yarn I'm sorry to see go. If you can still find it I highly recommend it for knitting accessories.
It's been a while since I've blogged ~ but we're still here and doing fine. Home today with the "big" blizzard which wasn't big by Canadian standards, but we did get about a foot and a half of snow that's been causing white outs and some pretty impressive snow drifts. We're inside with the woodstove on enjoying pristine winter views.
What better to keep warm while shovelling snow than a snuggly new scarf? I finished knitting this just before Christmas, but wanted to share it on the blog. Both Nicole and I have gotten some cozy, warm wear from this scarf. It's the same as my other one in berry reds, knit in my favourite blues. Knitting these striped scarves is addictive, I don't tire of the colour changes. I like scarves very long - at 88" it can be worn in all sorts of ways. http://ravel.me/ReneeKnitsToo/9p9af
Nina finished her show Championship in 2010 and was a delightful girl in the ring. Now we've moved on to the fun stuff... obedience and tracking. She has a lot of hair and looks very grown up ~ just 9 months old in this photo.
I've been sewing, not so much time for knitting. Very adorable baby boy quilt to share soon .
Be well, stay warm and tell those you care about you love them.
