Scarves for Mr and Mrs

I started both these scarves around the same time, but lovingly put my Mr as first priority and finished his scarf this week. I really like the way the wool changes hue both gradually and suddenly. I would recommend this type of knitting - doing two items at once, but have one that is simple and one that requires a bit more concentration. That way you can work on whichever project suits your environment and/or state of mind.
Plus a scarf is a very portable project that knits up satisfyingly quickly.

Skye High Inspiration

We've just been on a holiday to the Scottish Isle of Skye.  It was fabulous!  It's Autumn here so the colours were rich and dramatic.

Then of course I stumbled across a fabric shop!! Even in these far flung isles I managed to spend money on material! I chose colours that represent all the lovely scenery we had been living amongst and now plan to make a patchwork quilted wall-hanging from them. Now for the drawing board!

 Have you ever made anything inspired by a favourite place or holiday?
