Is there a competition for the worse blocked scarf ever? If so, I have an entry.
A DNA double helix cable scarf (that I’m sure I first saw made up on the Seamstress Erin blog but I can’t find it now so maybe I imagined that), started for Christmas 2013, in a mystery grey/black yarn I inherited that I think has wool in. My first attempt was ripped out as the needles were too small for the yarn, I think they could have done with being larger still actually, that plus the marbled yarn does not show up the cable at all well. Oh well, tis done and the recipient wears only black with the occasional grey anyway. She does, however, have a biology degree, so will hopefully get what it is, if she peers closely enough.
This may be my last make completed before Christmas as I feel utterly rubbish, with flu (although I did manage to persuade myself it was shingles earlier) and doing much more than sitting in bed waiting for people to write sewing blog posts for me to read is out of the question, and after a couple of hours of that I need a nap. Plus it’s the last day of school term for the kids tomorrow. ugh.
