Latest Project

Maybe my last project of the year, before it gets too hot here to knit.
It's a pattern I made up from a Reverse Herringbone Scarf pattern I found on the net.
Got some lovely Alpaca yarn from the Hunter Valley just north of Sydney.
I am making it for my God-daughter before she moves to Melbourne next year.
The only stipulation was that it had to be "Sex Bomb Red", not tacky "Hooker Red"

Slogging it out with Myrna Stahman

This is my practice effort so far with the Matthew Scarf, before I start for real.
Looks nothing like ones others have knitted
Perhaps I need to go up a needle size or try a different yarn.

Also the chart is extremely hard to keep track of, without going blind.

Having trouble with the slpwise at the end and beginning of alternative rows
