A tale of two scarves

Whilst access to the internet has been tricksy (required a visit from ISP, plus a new modem to fix!), I have completed the knitting of two scarves! The top one knitted in double-quick time - less than two days, because I was very intrigued to see how the shaping worked: the scarf is assymetrical and fastened with the padded heart, which surprisingly was the first part to knit. I used this pattern by Kate Gilbert from the Twist Collective. This is a present for a special little girl.

The second scarf is the wonderfully warm, simple lace stripes (which automatically create the chevrons) that I knitted for myself from the Fifteen Knitting Kit that I wrote about on 1st December 2009. I was spurred on to complete it by the exceptionally cold weather this winter!
