I finally finished the scarf to match the owl hat I knitted for a friend way back in June! It too has a cable owl, but consists predominantly of a simple lace pattern I plucked from my knitting bible (Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Needlework, a highly valuable retro tome on everything from blackwork to macramé)
I apologise for the poor quality, hasty photos: I had only my phone with me and had to hand it over the next day. The baby alpaca, by Rowan, is as soft as can be and has a lovely haze, but the scarf felt nicely heavy too.
I hope the recipient likes it as much as her hat and that Glasgow has one or two chilly winter days for her to wear them!
