The Knitty Gritty

I started a scarf for my friend Pam on Boxing Day naively thinking I would have it finished by mid January for her Birthday. It was a little late but at least it’s still cold outside!

I chose Rowan’s baby alpaca wool in dark grey because it is so soft and also has enough texture to it that it looks great in garter stitch. I thought it needed something bright to set it off so attached some neon pink pompom trim, first sewing it on with the wool and then fastening it with matching pink thread.

I think the effect is rather lovely and I’d love to use the same colour combo with a thicker wool for a cushion cover or throw. But next time I will start much earlier!
