Bainbridge scarf

My first long visit to Ravelry resulted in me downloading far too many free patterns, rushing to my meagre stash and realising that I have nothing, at all, to knit them with.

Or to be more honest nothing I wanted to knit them with… my wardrobe is in a similar state I find.


However, I did manage to find sufficient yarn (scarf weighs 60gms in DK weight) to make this Bainbridge scarf.

I knitted mine in a super soft cornflower blue bamboo yarn which feels really lovely I must say. And the scarf looks more complicated than it actually is; it’s actually deceptively easy.

Other deceptive things in the photos are: the grubby mirror which is naturally spotless in real life, and my double chin and developing jowls which are just. not. there. really. 

Unfortunately our lounge really is that hideous.

But as of tomorrow, I shall have a stash to be proud of and knitting projects backed up for months to come!

Because tomorrow, me, my Mum and my credit card will be shopping at this beautiful venue!

Although getting there by public transport is going to be an epic journey.

But, which journey would you choose: a train, 2 tubes and then a bus ride? Or driving into and across London by yourself?

Me too. At least I’ll be knitting on the way home.

    Ravelry is a dangerous place to lurk! Happy shopping though.
    I’ve just finished communing with you in sew hip too – good stuff!

    You made me smile with that post. Have fun with your mum and your credit card and all that wool and cotton.

    Hope you had fun at Ally Pally. I was there yesterday too! I bought some superb apply corduroy from ‘The Button Company’ and some pure wool for felting (with which I promptly crocheted a flower brooch for my mum). Did you see the clothkits stall!?
