The snow may be melting here but it is still mighty cold outside. At home I am constantly surrounded by three hot water bottles to keep warm and snug but I fear it would look rather odd to strap them to myself outside of the house. And so I knitted myself a super-scarf.
It is the warmest, longest, cuddliest scarf I have ever encountered and it is the perfect thing to act as a buffer against the vicious winter winds that attack me each and every time I step outside. Don't get me wrong, I love winter, but in my opinion one of the very best things about the season is the snuggling opportunities it brings, and my super-scarf is the perfect snuggling-companion for when I am out, and indeed, about.
Whilst I am rather proud of this scarf it would be wrong of me to imply that I am some sort of knitting genius...I can in fact only knit things that are flat, rectangular and of a single colour. I deeply admire people that can knit more taxing things but I simply don't have the patience or the inclination to do them justice. But merrily knitting a long, long, long chunky scarf is one of the most satisfying things in the world.
It is actually far longer than I intended because I just didn't want to stop knitting. And talking about it is making me want to make another one immediately! But I must get on with my stitching...I will soon have something new to show you.
