While waiting for the second sleeve of the cable sweater to dry, I've started and finished a scarf yesterday. It's a vairation of the Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gift. This book is available in the bookstore near my workplace but I didn't get it though. The Airy Scarf in the book is knitted using Rowan Kid Silk Haze which produced a very light and airy effect. I have an odd ball of Filatura Di Crosa Sympathie and thought it may make a nice airy scarf. The yarn is heavier so the fabric produced is of course not as airy. Essentially, it is a garter stitch scarf with a row of eyelets every 6th row. The finished dimension is 5.5 inches x 42 inches.
I've taken the rest of the week off from work to look after the children as my father-in-law is in hospital convalescing after a surgery and Mil is busy keeping him company and making sure he's well taken care of. I'm trying to keep my sanity as full-time home-making is a TOUGH job compared to office work. Hopefully, I can get some knitting done in between. Here are some coming attractions.
