FO: Uninspiring Scarf

2 Skeins of Manos, in 1×1 Rib, for boyfriends’ mother as a Christmas present. Rather uninspiring, pattern-wise, but I’ve had a bout of flu, followed by food poisoning in the past two weeks, so this was the perfect accompaniment to the hours of DVD watching that ensued.

I absolutely love the colours and how the yarn felt. I’m usually skeptical of variegated yarns, but this is absolutely beautiful.

I finished off the last of the Christmas shopping yesterday, which resulted in bouts of rage and euphoria:

RAGE: cashier in Wilko refusing to sell me children’s safety scissors because I couldn’t prove I was over 16. If this had been due to strict regulations I could understand, but a) I’ve bought razors there before with no problem and b) the twat was smirking. I fumed.

EUPHORIA: Finding a sewing machine for £50 reduced from £180 because the box was damaged. Stay tuned for initial (inevitably disastrous) experimentations.

Don’t be crazy! That scarf is anything but uninspiring! Simplicity is the best way to show off that yarn- it’s gorgeous.

Your scarf is fabulous.

Do ask if I can help with the sewing machine. I’m better with a machine than knitting needles!

I love that scarf and your description of the “twat”! Good luck with the sewing machine. Disasters won’t neccessarily ensue. (I don’t think it’s that hard. You have to have stick-to-it-ness and be willing to practice. You’re a knitter, you have those things in abundance!!!)
