I said a mean thing to someone (on their birthday! I am really that horrible!) so I made up for it (at least in part, I hope) with a lovely warm scarf. I wanted to keep it for myself, but that would have been extra mean. So I just settled for wearing it for a few raining miserable days instead, before I handed it over.
I added tassels during a long train ride, which was fun. When I got off the train, I left a nest of thread and yarn clippings in my wake. I also unpicked the stitching on a skirt, so it was quite pile of debris.
The yarn is Noro Kureyon (2 balls) and Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran (2 balls, plus another for the tassels). I referred to Jared Flood’s inspiring post on his Noro stripe scarf, which is far better than mine but LACKS TASSELS.
All in all, it was an excellent way of using up some leftover yarn whilst spreading warmth and hopefully goodwill in icky winter weather.
