FNWF

I joined in with others taking part in Friday Night With Friends - nice to think of us all beavering away at our various projects.

Although I have  a few deadlines coming up and I really should be in my very messy room machining away, the past few days have been all about knitting. My scarf  is coming along nicely and will soon be long enough to wrap twice around my neck. The pattern, found on Ravelry,  is easy - just one row repeated as many times as you like. It doesn't  take much concentration  so it's  a perfect telly-watching project (although I have to admit I've had to backtrack on a few rows from time to time).

When it's  finished, the scarf will be a good reminder of  a very happy  day in London with expatriate  Aussie Trash and my  new friends Lesley and Cathy.  We met at the Liberty café  and spent all afternoon in this most beautiful  of buildings. My purchases included some lovely  Liberty fabric (because it would have been rude not to buy some!) and the Rowan Tetra cotton yarn I'm  knitting with.

Nice to have projects like this that don't require much thinking! Lovely colour yarn and of course lovely memories knitted into the scarf!

Knitting seems to be stealing my attention at the moment too. Lovely to use the yarn and have that memory knitted up into a new scarf.
