So what have I been knitting recently? Well, the answer is scarves! Some while ago, I made a lovely chocolate coloured scarf with reversible rust-coloured stripes and I loved it.
What is truly remarkable is that this is a lace scarf. Worked in stripes. And it’s completely reversible! That is such a rare thing to find. So often, the wrong side looks so different from the front but not here.
You really can’t tell which is the front and which is the back. In fact, when I am working this pattern I often add a safety pin as a marker so I know which side I am designating to be the “Right Side”!
I love the way this has come and can see myself using this version in the Spring-time for cooler evenings – or for late-season snow showers!
Again this is in Amherst in their “Natural” colour. Amherst is a buttery soft 100% merino wool with great stitch definition, and I feel it has really brought out the beauty of this stitch.
So now it’s time to put the kettle on, make a lovely cup of tea and sit in front of that fire for some more scarf knitting!
Keep warm and keep knitting!
