What's their compatability rating, Dexter?

Sometimes you get a pattern and a yarn that just belong together. I reckon this was a Perfect Match. Ooooh ah wooo!

Edgar from Knitty, Fall 2006 in a Happy Spider hand-dyed 8ply wool on a 5mm needle to give it drape.


The pattern is very simple. I only had the usual 2 or 3 attempts to get the first repeat right and then I was flying.



It generated much interest when knitted in public. I only wish I'd had several balls of it at the National Library for the screening of The Librarians - could've made a killing. The knitting was certainly more entertaining than the programme.


Tweedy yarn looks fantastic in stocking stitch, but garter stitch makes it pop like a weasel.

It's a great scarf. The yarn is a perfect fit and it complements the tree perfectly!

Gorgeous!

I will give The Librarians one more shot, then it's quits. So much potential. It's like dry Weet-Bix at the moment!

That yarn had a destiny...and you discovered it. Id's have to say that the compatobility rating on this one has gone through the roof.

The non-knitting general public are always amused by knitting that's not straight! The colour of this would have waved at everybody too. Really lovely!
Cheers Gillian

The scarf looks like it is going native in the tree. It's certainly a great pattern/yarn match.
