This time it was one of my part-time contract staff who has been with us since before I started. I love J and will miss her very much; not just for her work.
So another leaving scarf. This time a Short Circuit in 8ply on 5mm needles to give it drape. This was a smooth and silky white wool from Mum's stash. I remember the trip to the Wangaratta Woollen Mills in the mid-80s when it was bought. Mum, Nanna and me on a yarn buying road trip. We stayed overnight in a motel in Albury (I love staying in motels!) and bought Dad a suit in an op-shop the day before we went to the woollen mills. He wore that suit to my brother's wedding a few years later.
Anyway, Spidey overdyed the yarn a while back and this colourway is "Wisteria" (I called it Hydrangea because she didn't tell me it was Wisteria, but if you want some, you need to ask for Wisteria).
I think the scarf turned out beautifully, and matches at least one of J's work outfits. I know, as a knitter herself, that she appreciates the love and intent that is the scarf.
Didn't manage to get a photo of her wearing it, but you get the general idea.
