Finished version 1!!
Ok, here's my first completed BO - the silk & wool version. Finished knitting it on Saturday, washed and blocked it on Sunday (out in the sunshine as it was such a beautiful day!)
As you can see I didn't quite get rid of that kink!
Here's a close up.... I'm really pleased with the stitch definition.
This is intended for my mum - I hope she likes it (my parents are coming to visit this weekend) - I'm not sure she wears scarves very often.
I really felt as though I'd got the pattern licked by the end, but never stopped counting my stitches! I've still got the kidsilk haze version on the go, which is driving me mad as I'm knitting it on metal (aluminium?) needles and it's slippery as hell. It's already come off the needles a couple of times, but thankfully I've managed to sort it out without having to frog. I think I might either switch to a circular needle, or get some bamboo straights, which I hope would grip the yarn better? Anyway, am having a short break from the pattern by getting on with a cashmere Cozy!
