In the neck of time…

December 13th, 2009

Winter has officially landed here in Ottawa. Let the grind of snow-shovelling, car-scraping and longjohn-wearing begin. One of many ways I keep from constantly shivering is my trusty collection of scarves. I’d love to add any of these gorgeous neck-hugging etsy finds to my horde:

  1. Sweet Pea Hand-Felted Scarf by ElenaMakesThings
  2. Christmas Lights Alpaca Scarf by phydeaux
  3. Oatmeal Drop Stitch Scarf by moocowhandknits
  4. Double Down Cowl by fringe
  5. Tube scarf / Cowl / Neckwarmer from Real Vintage German Mail Bag by malam
  6. Laurent… a scarf by Fluur
  7. Necklush Ultra — Winterberry by necklush

On a related note, this past weekend rocked. For the first time in years, I knitted. I managed to finish a scarf that I started many moons ago — more decorative than warm, but still a ton of fun. Here’s one of the ends, avec tassels:

And here’s a closer-up shot to show you the ‘yarn’:

Like I said, I began this years ago, so I can say with only partial confidence that the name on the skein was “Kitty”; it also came in a copper/brown/gold combo. Even an über-amateur knitter like me can make this easily — I used 6mm needles, and used the knit stitch the whole way (since it’s so loose, there’d be no way of telling if I were on the knit or purl side anyway). This will be a Christmas gift for a good friend of mine; here’s hoping she doesn’t read this post and ruin her own surprise, ha!

    I love scarves– even in the summer.
    Those scarves are so beautiful, peas in the pod makes me laugh- so sweet

    ooh! There’s me! :D Thank you!
    Well done you for knitting with that yarn – I find it almost impossible to knit with! Your scarf looks beautiful though.

    Thank you, Em! I love all of these – and yours is lovely!
