Lazy Sunday

I love Sundays, especially when the sun shines. It’s a day to be with the family, enjoy the simple things in life. So, after a spot of baking and an hour or two in the garden I decided to sit down with my scrap box and do some indulgent knitting. This teeny little neck warmer was the result.

I talked about the pattern in a previous post, and embellished it with another sweet  little flower. The neck warmer used up half a ball of Rowan’s Alpaca Cotton that’s been lying around and the flower took a tiny scrap of Kidsilk Haze. It may not be to everyone’s taste, but I spent a happy hour knitting and sewing and I’m sure it will find a grateful home.

Now, it’s back to more complicated patterns and a felting project I’ll tell you more about next time.

  1. I am pleased you had a go at this, it also works well in cotton and one can feel quite ‘Tres chic’ Parisienne when wearing it, especially when you knit it in stripes.
    I also like your Moebius attempt. Looking forward to next weekend.

    Sounds like a perfect afternoon!
    Lovely neck warmer and pretty flower – I like things you can finish in an evening… then its sometimes good to have something on going too…
    Really looking forward to your felty project!
