so i finished my Rae, but it turned out quite a small little scarf. i loved reading all of your suggestions last week, especially the one about finishing the scarf in a different, contrasting colour, but by then i had already started decreasing and the yarn did eventually last, even though the scarf is now a lot smaller then i had expected. but for the warm spring days we've been having, it's just perfect and i can still make a bigger/longer one come autumn... (in the photo above i'm wearing a necklace by the kooky green owl sent to me by my lovely friend danielle in a parcel full of goodies last week!)
so here is my little scarf in all it's glory, plopped on a blanket in my parents' garden: (i'm re-reading the spring chapter of I Love Dirt!)
and this is what happens when you want to take a fancy photo of yourself in your new scarf, but the only photographer around is a bobby-car driving 2 year old :)) but at least you get a glimpse of my bump, hello third trimester!
