We're in the middle of a heat-wave, and I've been knitting warm woolly things. After I saw Tea's version of the Baktus-scarf I knew I had to knit one myself. I wanted to make it small enough to fit my almost-five-year-old. I chose the yarn and started knitting. I started it on the 10th and today I finally cast off. Normally it wouldn't have taken that long to knit, but I've been busy doing other things (like, you know, sewing obsessively..) It was fun to knit, and I loved to see how the colors started pooling and even flashing in places. The yarn is my own hand-dyed, so that made it even more fun for me, as I haven't knit with my own yarn that much. Anyway, here's the finished scarf:
And a pic of the girl wearing it:
The funniest thing about that pic? The girl is wearing her bikini, while modelling a woolly scarf. :D
Pattern: Baktus by Strikkelise
Yarn: my own hand dyed
And now that I've finished this scarf, I'll continue working on the raglan for my boy. Only one sleeve to go!
