Well here we are, as promised: A "ta-da" moment I think they're called in crafty blogland (I'm still pretty new to this). I feel a little mean doing it before Mr L has even received his scarf - it's been extremely busy modelling in photoshoots, and is now waiting to be wrapped and sent - but Mr L should get it just in time for when this balmy late-September weather has given way to the more usual autumnal wind and rain. And he'll actually get to feel it's chunky softness and wrap it around his neck, whereas you guys just get to look at photos, so I guess that's fair really!
So here goes........
Isn't it just so chunky and cuddly and warm-looking?! Mr L is a very lucky man.
Now onto the particulars:
The scarf measures 2 metres in length and is 27cm in width. I used Wendy aran yarn (400g ball) which is 75% acrylic and 25% wool, shade 682, which is a mix of three colours: dark red, dark grey, and a charcoal/slate colour.
And most importantly, the pattern I found on Etsy, from a lovely lady called Joede and her shop called BlackPearl. It turns out she was brought up in the Cotswolds - not far from me - and knows Oxford, so it's even sweeter to know that she's familiar with my neck of the woods, even though she lives all the way over in America now. So big thanks to Joede, and please go and take a look at all the lovely items for sale in her shop!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy this glorious weather.
Big love, emmalemonade x x
p.s It was lovely to received all those friendly comments on my last post - they really do make this blogging lark worthwhile, so thank you :)
