Well just take a look at this little beauty! It's been in hiding since a school snow day last year.
It was January 18th 2013 and I sat snuggly by the fire and enjoyed the impromptu excitement of both snow and an unexpected day at home. It was the perfect day to start a warm, woolly infinity scarf. Sadly, it lay untouched for the rest of the year, hiding in the corner awaiting the return of my 'scarf mojo'. Well, it's back! Resurrected on January 18th 2014! This little beauty is flying along and will soon be out and about around my cold winter neck.
It's Anne Hanson's 'Monkey Bread', using the gorgeous 70% mink, 30% cashmere mix from http://www.minkyarn.com. It is the softest, warmest and scrummiest yarn EVER!
It's actually a much deeper purply wine colour than the photos show. The picture below gives a much truer indication of the colour.
I used a provisional cast-on as it's an infinity scarf this time. I have previously made a blue long scarf version which keeps out the coldest of cold winter weather beautifully.
Slightly annoyed (er, that's an understatement!) last night to discover that I had made an error in the cabling and to frog about six inches of my labour!!! Still better that it's correct and taking a little longer, than completed but with an error, even if I'm the only one to notice...... it would still be there!
Maybe I'll be ready to show you next weekend. I also have yarn ready to begin a ripple blanket for Evie, but as always time in the evenings gets gobbled up by mountains of schoolwork.
