Knitted gifts

My two knitted gifts have been received by their new owners - so here they are for you to see.

The Checkerboard Scarf, made using 70% merino wool 30% silk blend bought from the Old Bus Depot Markets.  Knit over (what seemed like) millions of hours, but admired and appreciated by the recipient.  It is a lovely soft yarn that drapes beautifully.  It can be worn as a scarf, but is also wide enough to be worn as a wrap.

 The Horizontal Rib Scarf (from One More Skein by Leigh Radford - borrowed from the A.C.T library), made using Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8 ply 100% wool.  To fit the almost 400 stitches, I knit this on circular needles.  The casting on and off seemed never-ending, but only 25 rows were needed so really it knit up very quickly. 


  1. Wow. Do you take commissions?

  2. Thank you for the ego-boost! I'm proud of my work, but I'm still at the basic stage. Some of the amazing and beautiful things that more advanced knitters can make will leave you awestruck.
