Matching Scarves

Am still in the UK, heading back to NYC tomorrow. Spent a fun day with my brother- and sister-in-law and their adorable 3-year-old, Olive. My mother-in-law made Olive a stuffed Winnie the Pooh bear for Christmas, and knitted a lovely white jumper for Pooh (or Winnie, as Olive calls it). So, I decided that Pooh needed a scarf, and Olive decided that she needed one as well. So, a blurry camera-phone shot of Olive wearing her new scarf and holding Pooh's. Olive very providentially wore a matching striped pullover -- already a fashionista!

The scarves are made up in Rowan handknitted cotton, in pink and deep red stripes, in simple garter stitch, with fringe. Easy, mindless knitting on the train to and from Belgium last week.

Good workaround on the photo of your neice ;)

I really enjoyed Saturday - so nice to get the chance to chat about knitting for several hours!

I've joined in the Overalls of Shame World Tour (UK leg) - now just trying to think of ways to photograph them without actually having to wear them! Perhaps Ben or Sam will volunteer....

Hope your trip back to the US was smooth and uneventful.
