Outlander and Knitting


I’ve been watching Outlander every week and I love the knitwear they have Claire in.

There’s one scarf that she wears and as soon as I saw it, I was all “OMG, I know that yarn, I have it in my stash and I must knit this ASAP.” I spent quite a bit of time pausing the show so that I could get an idea of stitch count etc. In the end, I came up with a fair approximation.

Keep Your Neck Warm


As my creativity is zero right now in the humor department, I’ll share one of my compulsions.

I knit. Alot. Really – very much alot. I have to keep my hands busy and one of the ways that I do this is knitting. I currently have 4 totes of scarves that I’ve made. One of the totes is full of scarves that I have listed in my Etsy shop – HandKnit ScarfShop. The others are waiting to get listed.

My current faves are pullover cowls / neckwarmers made from a really bulky yarn. They’re huge and offer a great deal of neck and throat coverage. I’m big on this – if my neck is warm, I’m warm. They can also be worn multiple ways –  they can lay flat for full neck and throat coverage, can be folded over for a collared look or can be gathered for a looser feel.

Keep your neck warm, look fab and help make sure that my house doesn’t become over run with scarves.
