this pattern by Brooklyn Tweed using two skeins each of Noro Silk Garden 47 and 272. I love how this turned out, and see other versions of this scarf in my future. Mr Q was eyeing this one covetously, too.
All this knitting (along with all the tidying up of my crafting space) has fired up my yarny enthusiasm. A while ago I discovered Sarah London's brightly coloured blog and her Crochet-a-Rainbow appeal for victims of the Queensland floods. As Mr Q is a Queenslander, I was very touched by her appeal (which she has now expanded to Christchurch and Japan earthquake survivors). Sarah is asking for granny squares which she will sew into blankets. Having dusted down my crocheting skills just a couple of weeks ago, I have taken up the challenge. Three squares so far, and more on the way as I use up odd balls of wool from the bottom of my knitting bag, along with a couple of discounted, discontinued colours found at the Black Sheep Craft Barn near Warrington on Saturday. I'm sure these granny squares don't count as the start of another project, do they?
