A little while ago, my friend Vicki from the 2 Bags Full blog posted about her year long project called the Pink Scarf Project.
Please read all about it HERE on her blog. Such a very worthwhile cause and of course I wanted to make a scarf as well.
As you know, we are in France at the moment, and as you also know, our cottage is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Now, I had some pink wool which I had bought in the summer,
and I had crochet hooks, but knitting needles? Nope. And no wool shops or haberdashery shops in the nearest town ( 13km ) to get any. So I started making a few embellishments first, and waited for the brocante shop in a town nearby to open on Wednesday. And I got my knitting needles there, yay! Pink ones, of course! -
I am a very basic knitter, but I thought that with some pretty flower embellishments even a plain scarf would look nice. The wool I used for the scarf is very fine, as I wanted a very fluffety light scarf,
and for the flower embellishments I used a slightly thicker pink yarn
and the most delightful deep raspberry pink, very fine silk/metallic yarn -
You gonna get lots of pink pictures now, lol, because it all looked so sweet! -
I am really enjoying knitting and crocheting at the moment, it gets dark quite early now, and it is so cosy and comfy spending the long evenings sitting by the fire and playing with wools.
Oh, I might just link this post to Beverly's PINK SATURDAY at the How Sweet the Sound blog, even though the theme over there this week is mostly fall stuff.
