Mum's scarf

I did it in about two weeks I reckon. To be fair, that's all I did. Morning and evening on the train, and very occasionally in the evening. Mostly on the train though, my commute never went so fast! Ends are sewed in, and the beauty of this Baktus is that it doesn't need blocking. The last thing I want to be doing in this manky weather is spraying something with water and waiting for it to dry. Because that might just take more time than I can handle.

Since this photo was taken, I've actually wrapped it. I know, totally bonkers right?! I'm pretty sure I've never wrapped a Christmas present in November. Oh well, there's a first for everything isn't there? And it means that as soon as we get our tree next month, there'll be a little present at the bottom cheering it up.

Christmas still feels like ages ago to me, most probably because I haven't been in the shops much, and therefore haven't been brainwashed with carols and garish decorations. But who cares, I'll be focusing on that photo of stripes a little longer. Don't you love stripes?! I think I may be developing an obsession...

It looks lovely, I'm sure she'll be thrilled with it.

LOVE the stripes.

I love knitting on my commute too. I only get a seat and peace and quiet in the mornings but I enjoy a little time with some simple knitting and an audio book.

I'm knitting a Boneyard Shawl at the moment on the bus which is perfect!
