A while back I had a delightful visit out into the countryside with some friends to Nurturing Fibres http://www.nurturingfibres.co.za/about.php. While there, I chose two balls of wool with specific people in mind. I was happy to have the asssistance of my friends when choosing the colours of the wool. Once home, I set to work on a challenging pattern to make a birthday gift for my precious sister.
Little did I know that it would be completed long after her birthday and I finally managed to give her the belated gift on her recent visit. She was so thrilled with the choice of colour and will find the scarf useful in the cold Free State winters.
I enjoyed the challenge of a new pattern but was disappointed with myself for choosing to make the smaller size as I think there would have been enough wool to complete the bigger size. Anyhow, I now have left over wool and will perhaps use it in my first attempt at knitted socks.
