In The Pink!

This scarf has been on the needles for a few weeks now - I couldn't understand why it was taking so long to complete. It is a lace stitch but it was easy and repetitive, so not much fiddling about there.  Then last night I blocked it and the usual magic happened when the yarn got wet and flat - it grew!
It is now a whopping 6ft. 6 inches long!  No wonder it took a long time to knit!  This has been knitted in hand-spun pure new wool in bubble-gum pink.  I see on Yahoo today they are saying that's the colour people are buying their jeans in this season -  now they can have a scarf/wrap to match.  It wasn't intentional - I just have a weakness for bright pink.

It's going on Etsy if you fancy it!

That is sure to sell, it's amazing; no need for any hardboard when you ship it either! ;-)

Lovely scarf! No wonder it took you so long. Can't wait to see the trend you're starting here, all those people wearing their pink jeans with pink scarves... LOL xoxo
