Another FO


i made this scarf to go with the hat I made for my niece before the weekend, she needs a complete combo after all:-) I used Rowan pure wool dk, which I have to say is much softer than I imagined it would be, and its machine washable too, so thats a big plus! Its a very plain scarf with the addition of a heart motif and my nieces initials also knitted on!You can probably just see the detail I'm talking about!

I'm taking part in a dishcloth swap so spent sunday afternoon test knitting a dishcloth for myself! I ordered some peaches and cream from the Yarn grove in the states and its really nice cotton, soft but feels like it will be very hard wearing too! I used the mason dixon dishcloth pattern, and am very pleased with the results! It reminds me of a wall and as I was knitting it, I imagined humpty dumpty sat upon it.........so don't be surprised for a wall inspired cushion cover or something of the like in the near future:-) The dishcloth I make to send to my partner will of course remain a secret...............for now!!!!!!
