diversion

I've been working away on my revamped Rowan sweater - it's coming along great, but I needed a diversion, a change. A new colour, a quick project. This fit the bill perfectly. Susan had gifted me with 2 balls of Noro Taiyo, and rather than overthink it, I made a simple 2 row, 1x1 ribbed scarf. Millions of these have been made before, and millions more will be made, and I'm pretty sure I'll be making some of them. It grows like the wind, looks great, and it always interesting, waiting for the next colour to change. It's very long, and can be wrapped around my neck twice.I had thought at first that it would make a nice man's scarf, but the flashes of pink and turquoise squashed that notion, especially after I asked my husband's opinion.

And the Rowan sweater? I'm still in love with it - sleeves are started, body will use up the remaining yarn, except enough for some reverse stockinette stitch borders. (I think. I may still do garter stitch borders, so I lies nice and flat...)

Can't wait to see your Rowan sweater done!

Yeah, pink & turquoise in a scarf would get negative reviews form my hubby too for a man's scarf.
