Today is my brother's birthday! :D (yay)
Since for Dad's birthday I made him a scarf I decided to make D one too, so bought 3 balls of this lovely soft Vera Moda yarn and got knitting. Dad's scarf was of moss stitch, you may remember my strong opinions about the both sides of scarves looking the same, :/ , thus ruling out stocking stitch... this time I went for rib; simply cast on 20 stitches and just carried on until all three balls were knitted. As it turned out this made for a looooong scarf (approx 5ft long!), no matter; my oldest son thought it was cool, worked out a cool way of arranging it and is modelling it here today (isn't he handsome?)
I've been thinking about Mum's opinion that D is a Winter and I think she's right, so this dark dark charcoal I think will look really good on him...
The scarf was supposed to have been ready on Saturday, when we saw the family, but even though I've been knitting like a maniac to get it finished it just wasn't done! So it's been popped in the letterbox for when he gets home from work... hopefully a nice surprise!
