It was just as well that I had finished knitting this because I certainly needed it on my drive to work, it was so cold. Not the most flattering of pictures but hey ho! I found this pattern on the internet and thought it was a bit different. The designer calls it a neck scarf and it does what it says on the packet, it just sits around the neck and keeps you warm. I knitted it with three strands of DK Sirdar Denim wool in this gorgeous colour, I also adapted the flower slightly and added the buttons for a bit of a centrepiece. What do you think?
I have another book recommendation and I would say that if you can get hold of it, then you will not be disappointed. For myself, I have been trying to get a copy for months. It is now out of print as far as I am aware but there are copies available on Amazon, (for the price of a small house I might add)! I finally managed to get one from the library, but had to go out of the county because there isn't one in the whole of Kent. The one copy they had listed was stolen. Now, whilst I cannot condone such behaviour, I can see why someone was tempted. Feast your eyes on these beautiful goodies:
It goes without saying that if anybody happened to have a spare copy lying about who for some mad, mad reason would want to sell it .... for less than the price of a small island in the Bahamas....then I would be very grateful!
