How my garden grows
The pattern is really simple. With Phildar Auteuil (in the Reinette colourway) cast on a million stitches or so (I think I had about 350) on an 80 cm circular needle (4 mm). Knit 14 endless rows of garter stitch. (I knit 12 rows and then two rows with a plain green, since I thought the Reinette would be too colourful next to the bumpy Bowling yarn. Not necessary at all, in my opinion. Then knit 2 rows with the weird and wonderful Bowling (The Nomade colourway). I used it all by its bumpy self, but it might have been a good idea to double it with the Auteuil. The thin thread was quite difficult to knit with. Continue with 28 rows of garter stitch, then 2 more rows of Bowling and 14 more rows of garter stitch. Bind off and enjoy. A word of warning: I fell for the beautiful colours of the Auteuil yarn and bought it despite the fact that it contains 70% acrylics. I used some of the leftovers to knit a pair of wristwarmers. After one day, the were pilling like crazy. Keep your scarf away from Velcro etc and treat it carefully. (I would never recommend anyone to knit a sweater with this yarn, no matter how lovely the colours are.)
Depending on the number of stitches you cast on, this scarf takes two or three balls of Auteuil and one ball of Bowling.
Speaking of gardens, this is how my Tangled Garden socks are developing. I'm using one of my balls of Opal, plus some white Regia. I like the look of these, but for the moment I've put them on hold. There are too many Christmas things under way.
I just saw that Magknits bag issue will go online tonight. Let's hope the ftp server co-operates...
