So I finally finished this beauty for my friend's birthday (OK, so it may have been a few days later actually), using some luxurious Debbie Bliss Angel yarn.
Isn't she a fluffy dreamboat!
The colours combined with the clever pattern are like the frothy ocean!
This scarf took forever to make though, so I don't think I'll be treating myself to one any time soon! Despite only actually having to knit one row of pattern within a four-row repeat, the yarn (70% Super Kid Mohair, 30% Silk) was very tricky to work with at first. But it did get easier with time thankfully. At the beginning (and if I ever took my eye off the ball) I found that it was all too easy to accidentally pick up extra stitches, but the benefit of this particular pattern is that it also hid mistakes quite well!
The pattern is from a Debbie Bliss booklet called 'a fine romance'.
Call me a glutton for punishment, but I bought the same yarn in a purple colour and I quite fancy having a go at this cropped jumper from the same booklet:
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted my 1940s-style, half-moon manicure above. I used this super easy tutorial from Wayward Daughter and I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt.
