It has been decided that this bloh of mine isn't a spam one after all. I am very grateful for that. I was a tad concerned about whether I'd ever be able to post anything.
I'm actually going through a scarf knitting stage at the moment, encouraged by the cold weather. The scarf I have on the needles at the moment is one done with two sizes of needles. The needles I am using are 5mm, and 12mm. It is done in garter stitch, and you do a whole row of one set of needles, and a whole row in the other size. It makes the scarf look lacy, without the work involved. You can really use any wool, any needles.
