Red Scarf, Yellow Scarf

The only thing I am thoroughly enjoying at the moment is knitting. So, I thought I'd show off what I've been working on, lately.

I would date the booklet this scarf pattern is in to the mid-1930s judging by hairstyles and some of the other patterns in there.

I've put the pattern up here for anyone who might want to give it a go, themselves. It's a lot easier than it looks, but I did encounter a couple of problems which I think are in the pattern itself, if that makes sense.

This scarf is a work in progress. I just wanted to do something super simple that I wouldn't need to think too much about. Once I'm not so busy, I plan on trying something a little more challenging so as to improve my knitting skills rather than letting them stagnate. You can also find the pattern for this scarf here. This dates to WWII - so, somewhere from 1939 to 1945 as it's an Australian pattern.

For those of you who said you were interested in more details of my projects, you can find them here - I will admit I'm a bit slack, at times, with keeping my Ravelry account up to date but feel free to add me as a friend if you use it, too.

Love,
Andi B. Goode
