Every year when autumn arrives I start to think about knitting. Must have something to do with the evenings getting colder. Although I suspect the sudden bounty of yarn at the craft shops plays a large part.
In the past I've knitted vests and jumpers, but this year I felt a new scarf was in order. Two and a half large balls of 8ply yarn later and this is a result. A brown and blue pinstripe scarf. Why brown and blue pinstripe? Because that's the colour of the tenth doctors suit. Well one of his suits anyway.
The scarf is knitted in brown rib-stitch with the blue stripes embroidered on afterwards. Crocheting the whole thing would have been easier. I could have worked the stripes in as I went. However crochet uses more yarn, and I don't like the look of it for large flat surfaces.
Now I just need the weather to get a little colder so I can wear it.
