Mr Cornflower

The lucky recipient is very happy with it too....though I did wonder what you were up to!

Claire

Oooooo, it's lovely. Well done and lucky recipient. I'm going to be busy knitting for new babies over the next few months but will remember your scarf for the future. We ate in a Pizza Express last night where someone was busy knitting socks whilst chatting to her friend and waiting for her supper. I think more knitting in public would be A Good Thing!

Have just read Sarah Moss's memoir of her year in Iceland. To be published in July and called NAMES FOR THE SEA. She tells how EVERYONE in Iceland knits all the time: in public, on transport, even walking along the road. And they knit in the Icelandic way which is NOT LIKE OURS!
But wanted to say: this looks lovely! I will try soon...have just watched the edge stitches video and that's a brilliant wheeze. Don't you just ADORE the knitting videos? They are truly comforting...I would like to meet all the knitters who speak so soothingly to us....lovely!

Cornflower

I agree, Claire, and I did knit part of a sock in public once, I recall!

Cornflower

Gosh, my knitting skills don't extend as far as doing it while walking! Shall definitely look out for Names for the Sea.

I often see people (both men and women) knitting on the tube.

Lucky, lucky you! Peter
