I thought I would share what I'm up to on the knitting front. I have made one of these scarves before as a gift for one of my all time favourite English eccentrics, Debo the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire.
I absolutely adore everything about her, including her love for Elvis. Which explains the scarf.
And dear reader I have it on good authority that she has been seen wearing said scarf , too thrilling :)
Anyway I'm knitting another one. I have some of the wool left over from the original scarf and as it is fairly quick to knit I can fit it in before the two other knitty projects I plan to complete before Christmas.
I'll probably sell this scarf to get some pennies towards my annual pilgrimage to Chatsworth. Yes, I have to go EVERY year.
It looks a little bit crumpled and curly here but all will be straightened out when I block it once complete.
I made the design up myself using graph paper, it's a fairly simple process, and would translate to other designs if you have an idea in mind.
