Well the scarf seems to have stalled, it's at 66 inches now, and it's on hold. There are 2 reasons for this, the first being that even though the yarn I bought was from the same dye lot, and I alternated the skeins, there is a definitely stripy appearance to the section with both skeins. I'm really not sure what to do about it... Even the boy says it's obvious, though he also says it doesn't matter, as it's a bit that will be round his neck. I'm not sure anyone else will notice, but I will!
The other reason is that I've started a sooper secrit swap project, which I can't tell you anything about, but I love! It's not on my list either, so you won't guess...
I have to also share my amazing competition win. I entered a competition over at Poetry in Yarn, and was so excited when this came in the post yesterday:
I also received these from the UK Karma swaps
My final bit of news is very exciting, I'm going to Woolfest 2012! It was mentioned in Knit Now magazine, and I looked at the dates and was excited to see that it coincides with my summer holiday, and I will only be 45 minutes away. I can't wait, I've already started saving!
