that list from yesterday, well, I don't think it's getting any shorter. In fact, the more I procrastinate it the more it seems I find vitally important tasks to add to it. Okay, well maybe they're not vitally important but I did remember some pretty important stuff I still need to do this month, like our tax for instance ... oops... So to add to the chaos, the Rainbow girl and I have come over all funny and sick today, she's lying on the couch with a temp and grumpy mouth and throat, poor little thing. Toby is trying to annoy her as best he can.
To celebrate my first "real" Blogtober Fest post, I thought I'd share a new free pattern with you all. I quickly added this pattern to Ravelry as a free download before we headed off on our holiday but I thought I would share it here too.
It's a pattern for a little scarfette.
This little pattern has become my go-to quick gift knit. I love knitting it and it knits up so fast. I originally designed it to match a pair of the wonderfully popular fetching mitts that I had knit for a gift. I love these little mitts, it's no wonder they are the most popular pattern on Rav. I had half a skein of the lettuce worsted malabrigo merino leftover and wanted a quick little scarf to match the mitts. Inspired by the fetching mitts, I came up with this little matching scarf that uses pretty much exactly the other half of the skein. Perfect.
Have I told you how much I love malabrigo merino worsted? I'm really trying to buy only local yarns, ie. from local dyers, WOOLganics, Pear Tree and Bendigo but mal is my weakness. It really is so lovely. I love the subtle colour change in the kettle dyed yarn and the stitch definition of the single ply. Anyway, treat yourself to some. It's the perfect yarn for this little scarfette.
the scarfette is named paula's scarfette after my wonderful midwife :)
You can grab the pattern here
from the sidebar or over on Rav.
I probably should do something about catching up on all those emails and pms now, shouldn't I?
