Here is my latest finished knitting project! I started this 2 years ago, but because I keep my knitting in a cupboard, I often forget about it and that’s why things take so long.
The idea for this project was that I wanted a scarf which could not blow off my neck while cycling. This is really a snood, and it was made on circular needles with one ball of rainbow wool.
At some point in the knitting, I must have twisted the whole thing round and through itself, because one day I realised it was curling over as I was knitting. What I’ve accidentally created is a Mobius or infinity scarf – not what I intended, but I think it makes it more interesting!
I enjoyed making something so bright and colourful, and when I remembered to take it out with me, I did quite a lot of the knitting outdoors. There’s something very satisfying about that!
Now I’m using it, it does the job perfectly, keeping me cosy and warm on my winter commutes. I’ve made enough scarves now, so my next project will be some fingerless gloves – I’ll try not to take two years to finish those….
