brrrrrrrr it's cold out there..!

I was scraping off the ice of my car this morning- it's definitely time to get out those woolly hats, scarfs, and gloves- and if you haven't any yet, get yourself some wool and get knitting- it's great fun !!!!
The scarf I am working on has a cable stitch, a bobble stich and a diamond pattern- all inspired by a  Boden scarf which I was too mean to buy- so I decided to knit one myself.
You can get your inspiration from anywhere- there are no rules !!!!

                                                 scarf at the beginning

You can get lots of how-to-knit books in second-hand bookstores- and cheap wool from charity-shops!!!!

It just takes a bit of time-...but have fun!!!!!!Happy knitting !!!!!
More links about fantastic scarfs and knitting on two great blogs  centsational girl and
The inspired room
By the way, I will post a tutiorial about how to make this scarf in a few days- so get yourself some wool in the meantime!!

Love the color and the pattern. It would be nice to see what the scarf looks like once finished.
