We’ve come a long, long way together

One stitch at a time, this scarf is growing.

I have a thing for very long scarves.

I couldn’t help it or I really, really need this

One might argue that I have enough scarves as it is. One might. I won’t. My shopping went rather well the other day, I am now the proud owner of a brand new spring coat! Unfortunately, it’s too cold to wear it outdoors yet (and why would I wear it indoors, apart from admiring it in the mirror?). I quickly came to the insight that I do not own a suitable scarf to go with my new coat. Well, once again – how lucky I am to know how to knit! I’ve had two hanks of soft Louet merino yarn in light blue and chocolate brown for almost three years that was gifted to me in a swap in the Ravelry Book Club.

I’ve never really figured out what I wanted to use this yarn for, but yesterday it came to me when I realized I had a need for a new scarf. I knew I wanted it to have stripes and that one of the colours should be blue, and then I remembered these two hanks in my stash. I wound them into balls last night and cast on.

Looking pretty good so far! It’s a simple garter stitch scarf. Simple but pretty.
