Grande Place and scarf photos

It was a nice cold, but sunny day today - so we grabbed our scarves and went out for a walk. My models photographed beautifully - you can see some of  the results below and others on

Couldn't get close enough to the mannekin pis to put a scarf on him!!

Noro fan pattern on Ravelry

I just posted the pattern for the Noro fan scarf I made for DC on Ravelry. You can find it by going to If you have not already signed up you will have to do so. if you are a knitter I really recommend that you join.

Snow soon?

There's already snow on Vancouver Island and in the North East of England, so I guess it's our turn next. They are forcasting snow for the weekend, so maybe I'll be able to take some photos of scarves and socks outside.

Finally, the light was a little better today than it has been the rest of the week and I was able to take some pictures of the Merino Twist socks I've just finished for my mother. The next thing is to get them sent off and then hope they arrive before the Christmas rush starts.

I loved working with the Merino Twist yarn. It's soft to the touch and knits up beautifully. The pattern was good too. Mock cables are much better than real ones for socks. When you are already knitting with 5-6 needles you don't need another thing to drop!!
