Missing: Lambs

It’s one of those weeks so far.  You may know of the ones.  Your brain shuts down and it takes your body with it, leaving you to tell your brain to quit it!  Get up!

Then you realise you’re not only talking to yourself, you’re arguing with yourself.  It’s a cylindrical problem you see.

However, enough about that.  I did finish up knitting a small piece, a Bo Peep Scarf, from Tiny Owl Knits.

Where are my fucking sheep

I’m wearing it with a handmade Taffy blouse, in the softest, greatest silk/cotton blend I’ve ever loved.  It just keeps getting softer!

I’m particularly fond of Tiny Owl Knits — I’ve made the Amy March Slippers and The Forest and Frill shrug, and while there is nothing terribly innovative about her techniques or construction, the prose she uses to write her patterns are worth the cost alone.  This scarf was just about increasing and decreasing the scarf at particular points so as to accommodate being tied into a bow once completed.

I did make one adjustment.  There is a garter stitch edge all around the scarf, to help roll the stockinette under and keep the bow looking neat.  I decided to line the back of the scarf so that a) the bow would stand up better and b) so that I could neatly tack the garter stitch edge down.


Tilly, the cat that slouches atop this blog, as always, has been helping me knit.  Just when I think I’ve been having a rough time, all I do is have to look at him and see that he’s wearing a funnel on his head.  The poor sod went in for a routine vet check-up and get some vaccinations, and ended up having to have a toe amputated.  At least I have all my toes, right?
