I found this gorgeous 4 ply hand dyed merino in my niece's long forgotten stash and I decided that it would look gorgeous as a scarf for her (or me) (or us). So, I sat on Ravelry until I found the perfect pattern that would challenge me a little more, but not put me off completely.
I'm not sure which photo reflects the beauty of the yarn - I'm pretty sure that both my dismal attempts at photographing it do not do the colour justice.
I'm enjoying knitting this up, although it is slow as I'm not too sure about unknitting lace and the pattern requires some concentration - not that it's hard, it just needs to be accurate.
This weekend the boys have pretty much been away from any screen type products - preferring to be outside and adventurous (it helps that we had to go to two parties as well). This morning I found them in the backyard making cubbies - one for each of them in our two almond trees.
In the backgound you can just see the almost finished chook house - affectionately called the chook penthouse as it is so large! I can't wait to get some chickens and to collect our first eggs.......
Hope you are all having or have had a great weekend.
