The yarn I bought yesterday now looks like this
But while it is a scarf, it isn't a very long scarf. That is what you get with 200g of mega chunky wool. 200g of three ply would make a very different piece. I did use twisted loop stitch to eke it out.
But that only goes so far.
Speaking of knitting projects, the cushion I knitted a long time ago is now getting smelly. I am not sure how well it will wash, but will have a go. It's stuffed with unravelled sweaters which make the best cushion lining ever, but are a poot to wash.
I wish I could remember how I knitted the thing, it's older than bear, I think. I do remember that I enjoyed the challenge of the smocking, I think you slipped one, knitted seven and passed the slipped stitch over but I couldn't swear to it.
As I am sitting next to the heater, I think it is time for a new project. Until that's finished I shall wash and hope!
