Strucked By A Knitted Star

There are a lot of shining stars walking among us every day. We meet them in the grocery shop, on the streets and in our relationships. But these are knitted and rather woollen - and may not shine. And they may not make others happy either - besides me.

It took a little longer than expected to knit the scarf. But it was such fun to knit the pattern. The pattern is from the book Kiri Kari.

As I realized that my stashed Drops Delight yarn was not as bad as its reputation - I used it for background color for the scarf.

The colors are great and the yarn soft and nice to knit with.

I added a feather and fan edge to the scarf. The white color got a bit too dominant but it works in a way. I am not a short scarf knitter obviously.

I tend to knit and knit - and end up with over two meter long scarves. But I like to tie them one more time around the neck.

I think I am going to use this scarf a lot. And who knows - maybe I can wish upon a star and get my wish granted. Be sure to check in on wednesday - there will be surprise for you.

A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a shinning star in whose light others may follow in the years to come

  6. Korte halstørklæder er måske pyntelige nok, men ikke rigtig brugbare når den kolde vind suser fra nord ;)
    Hvor er det dog smukt. Jeg synes dit valg af kant er helt perfekt til at balancere det hvide.

    Jag önskar jag hade mer tålamod! Jag stickar både på min randiga och en sjal med ringar insipirerat av dig, men tyvärr slinker andra saker emellan! :)
