Hitchhiker Scarf No.2 – DONE!

At last! I can’t believe how long it takes me to knit something. Even seemingly simple somethings. Case in point: the Hitchhiker Scarf. When you start out, the rows fly off the needles so quickly, and then about halfway through you begin to realise that things have slowed down. By the time you’re two-thirds in, those rows are taking a helluva long time to complete.

No, I didn’t time it – because that would just be… demotivating, shall we say. Anyway, the No.2 Hitchhiker I began back on 5 February is finally complete, and I likes it a lot.

Next on the needles is this lovely sweater (Cultivated Vines), purchased from e-patternscentral.com, with Naturally Haven 4ply merino yarn in nearly the same shade.

Wish me luck – this is only the second garment I’ve ever knitted. Must go – I’m knitting a gauge swatch. Apparently they’re important…

  1. This scarf is gorgeous. So… I’m not the only spinner who isn’t a fast knitter. And I thought it was just me. Love to spin but somehow the expectation is that I’ll then do something with the yarn. Can’t really see why myself. Surely the fun is in buying the fibre, admiring it for a few years and then doing something with it – maybe.
