Knitting is not my favourite hobby, I much prefer sewing or crochet but last Sunday I suddenly decided to take out the knitting needles and start knitting a scarf. A couple of years ago I saw a pattern I really liked in my Norwegian magazine “Hjemmet” which was knit in a really thick yarn.
As I didn’t have the time to go to shop I rooted through my stash and found a lovely silk yarn that I bought about 20 or 25 years ago (it seems I’ve started a trend here) in a shop in Switzerland that has long gone. The silk is much thinner than the wool used in the pattern so I had to adapt the number of times the pattern is repeated. I basically repeated it four times instead of twice. I also made a mistake (I added a row that’s not supposed to be there) but as I repeated that mistake throughout my knitting I simply call it a variation rather than a mistake. Nobody will ever know….
At first I was dubious about the whole project but now that I’ve finished it I really love it. The silk is very soft, warm and light. Oh, yes. I’m really looking forward to wearing this scarf.
