You may be wondering why I am posting intimate pictures of my husband and I.
Be assured that I am most definitely not.
Have I ever mentioned that my husband is a bit of a diva? A drama king?
Likes to hog the spot light, wants all eyes on himself!
Well, this little photo shoot is proof. He would not leave me alone till I put down the camera, untied the scarf and walked away. Sigh, next time I'll take my pictures while he is at work.
Anyways, this is my second, My So Called Scarf, I've made, and the second time I've used Louisa Harding's Kimono Angora in this lovely shade of blue. Normally I don't repeat myself in such a crazy fashion, but what happened is this.
First, I made this scarf in yummy Manos. I ended up giving it to my mom because she loved it and I found the fabric a bit to firm.
Second, I made this scarf (scroll down a wee bit) in the Kimono Angora. I ended up giving it to my mom because she loved and I found the scarf a bit too drapy.
(By the way, my mom did ask for both scarves. I'm not a bad daughter who just gives my precious mother the knitted duds.)
Anyways, I noticed on Ravelry that someone else had made a My So Called Scarf in Kimono Angora in the lovely blue shade, and it hit me. This was the perfect marriage of pattern and yarn. The pattern stitch makes a very sturdy fabric which works perfectly with the gorgeous drape of the yarn and Voila! I have the best scarf ever!
Ummmm..., I used two skeins and it's almost, but not quite, too short but other than that perfection.
