Plenty More Fish in the Sea.....


I seem to have been making an awful lot of knitted lace lately, which although I enjoy doing it, makes for a bit of a boring wait inbetween blog posts! However, I took a short break from the complicated knitting this week and whizzed up a little triangular scarflette...ok, the edging is in actual fact a basic lace pattern, but I've got to have something to keep me interested!



It's knitted in Noro Cash Island, a wool & cashmere mix, with loads of little wooden fish hanging from the picot edge. I have crocheted extra length to each end of the scarf, using a curly-wurly effect and a few more fish.

This is a really cute little scarf and can be worn either as above or with the tie at the front. It will be on Etsy later on in the day. SOLD already! If you fancy something similar (and I'd really like to make more of these) just get in touch, it can be arranged!


Number 84...need I say more? I am so desperate not to paint potatoes that yesterday while teaching a class of six year olds how to use watercolours, one of them had to take the brush out of my hand so he could actually have a go, because I was getting a bit carried away with the joy of painting some sky, some grass, a tree........oh well, not long now!!

Lovely scarf and great to hear that the big potato marathon is nearing the end - grit your teeth, keep your head down and dream sweet dreams of painting with green. Love the paintings that you showed in your last post - beautiful work

Seems your gardening fingers are still green. We had a look around fishing nets today, best not to ask, but the way you have the scarf looks like they did. Fishing nets don't have such beautiful colours....Good one Caroline. x x x
