Winter Kerchief...

I can't remember the last time that I knitted something for myself, pretty sad hey??? So armed with some more of this gorgeous yarn and a super simple pattern I got to work on rectifying this problem....
For the last 3 nights I've been click, click, clicking away in front of the T.V. working on my special project....
Now that it's finished I LOVE IT and just can't seem to take it off!!! It's a cross between a shawl and a scarf and you can wear it around your neck (which I prefer to do) or draped over your shoulders, either way it's absolutely DIVINE!!!!
I have plans for making another one of these for a friend using slightly chunkier yarn and adding a lace pattern to to outer edging just for a little fun, so stay tuned for the pattern notes.... Take Care :)
p.s. this pattern is a freebie avaliable from here....

  4. It does look wonderful on you Jodie. You should knit more for yourself. I should too, although I would prefer to lose a lot of weight first (before kids stage) so that I wouldnt have to knit them so big, lol!!! I am sure with the cold snap we are having that it will keep you toasty warm.

  12. Wow Jodie, you were right it is gorgeous! Do you tie it behind your neck? Making adult sized things takes so much longer, that's my block with it anyway. Again, I'm soooo pleased you are using and enjoying the wool.

  13. The colors you used are stunning together! And it looks so soft. Like you, I hardly ever knit anything for myself. I am just a gift knitter at heart.
