whoosh!


When Wandering Cat flashed this little number in her blog of December 12th, she started me on a two month fruitless search for Estelle Frill Seeker yarn. Seems like everyone who saw it, wanted it. As a result the yarn was sold out everywhere. Or so I thought.

But on our field trip to Richmond Hill a couple of weeks ago, I did find a ball of Frill Seeker but opted instead for this similar (knock-off?) yarn in a colourway I liked even better. Thank you Knitter's Attic!

This scarf is not exactly my style, but it's fun, quirky and interesting. The yarn is actually a ribbon of mesh, the entire scarf is 9 stitches wide and it's garter stitch all the way. Easy peasy, once you wrap your head around knitting into the top edge of the ribbon. One ball to make the scarf - you know you're done when you run out of yarn. With only 30m in the ball, I don't expect this'll take very long. Pretty much instant gratification, especially after the last scarf!

One of the ladies in my knit group has done two of these. They turn out very pretty.
