DIY Friday: A scarf!

Remember that really cool UK knitting book I told you about last summer? The whole book is incredibly gorgeous: HEARTFELT: The Dark House Collection by Kim Hargreaves.

So this winter, while I cuddled up under blankets and wrestled with novel revisions and slutty new ideas (coined by Laini Taylor, a universal dilemma!), I knitted away on the most crazy difficult scarf pattern I've ever tried. And...

I did it!


Now, for the even more crazy difficult hat...

  5. Holly, that's beautiful. And not to be braggy, that pattern looks similar to the christening gown that took me two years to knit (amid much gnashing of teeth) and my daughter 30 minutes to wear for her August baptism. I think your scarf is the better deal.

  7. Nothing better than a warm cozy scarf. It's beautiful, well done! Congrats on your novel, I think it's more for girls, but I'll definitely check it out once it's published :)
