Hat scarf combination for Imogen
I am this week intending to finish this project started a while ago but needs finishing now so that my daughter Imogen can enjoy the benefits of it while it is cold. This is being knit with a bulky yarn 50% wool/50% acrylic on size 9 circular needles. The hat was based on a pattern from Ravelry that I have adapted a little and added the scarf to. The scarf is simply knit in garter stitch - both sides at the same time ensuring the length is even and I am adding a pocket at the bottom for little hands to sneak into when cold.
As for the reading, I tend to have more than one book on the go at a time, to suit my mood for reading. Currently I am reading Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett, and enjoying reading a new Pratchett book after a long break. I had only realised I had not read this one when I was looking at his more recent book Snuff on Amazon - one for later.
Thank you to Ginny for hosting the Yarn Along, I can't promise I will be joining in every week, but will when I have something worth sharing and in the meantime will always be popping by to see what other bloggers are up to.
I have also written a blog post today over on the jointly written blog Spinspiration for our monthly online gathering of spinners, knitters, weavers, and all things woolly for Woolly Wednesday. Pop over and see what we are up to there - you are most welcome to join us at our informal gathering. I have shared there some pictures of finished (and unfinished) knitting projects from the festive period.
