A number of weeks ago I decided to be smart.
During the fall I tend to work on winter outfits and accessories for my family. Then the Christmas presents kick in and before you know it winter is about to end and I still haven't managed to make myself some decent winter gear. So this spring I took a long look down my yarn stash and decided to make a winter scarf. Surely, this winter I'll be ready to withstand the cold before the first snowflake hits us.
I ended up making this scarf.
It's the same pattern as this one -that I ended up giving away as a present. This scarf is also made from Soyeuse by La Droguerie but in the color 'poussières d'étoiles'. A softly shimmering silvery grey.
I must say, as strange as it may be to be working on winter outfits when spring is in the air, it's a satisfying sight to see that yarn stash decrease and see the stored box of winter clothes fill up. I can just hear my husband and brother laugh in the background now but I repeat, for a mild control freak, yes mild, it's a satisfying sight.
So now I'll make some progress on the winter sweaters dangling on my needles. Hah. You can quit laughing now boys!
