The post-Christmas lull allowed me time to finish the Keep Soldiering On Scarf which I was making for Will. 100g of beautifully soft merino (the shade is Jadestone) from The Yarn Yard has produced a 2x2 rib scarf, 4" wide and 46" long (52 stitches on 3.25mm needles).
I enjoyed this so much because of the texture of the yarn, its subtle colour changes and the sheer simplicity of it - perfect television knitting, no thought or concentration required!
Will is very happy with the end result and wore it to go sledging the other day.
By the way, if you pay a visit to The Yarn Yard blog you'll see that Natalie is hosting a BAFAB draw too.
