Outside the box
Today's post concerns not tatting, not sewing, not even quilting, but knitting. You may or may not know that I am the world's slowest knitter. Well, I assume I am since I have never met a slower knitter although I've never had an official knitting speed test. Anyway, despite the speed issue, I am always tempted by pretty yarn, and have several unfinished knitting projects lurking in dark corners of the house. Today I discovered this Rico Design Pompon Print yarn in a range of delicious variegated colours. Each 200g ball knits can be knitted up into a 2m long scarf. I can't get over how quickly it grows - I am already a third of the way through the ball and am planning who to make scarves for this Christmas.
