Drop stitch scarf

Firstly thank you everyone for your comments and good wishes for Basil! He is doing a LOT better, after 24 hours of taking ground-up hay and pellets in a thick paste from a spoon, he started showing interest in eating his "normal" food, and is now eating hard, crunchy foods again which he wouldn't touch before :-) It looks like he is well on the road to full recovery.

Here's the drop stitch scarf with corsage that I mentioned last time. Apologies for the pictures being a little "flash heavy" but we are losing the bright daylight around 5pm now. The pattern is from Knitting magazine a little while ago, from a "Make It Pink" feature. I used Wendy Wild Spice super-chunky yarn, 50/50 wool/acrylic and extremely soft - around one and a quarter 100g skeins.



I'm off to update my yarn and projects spreadsheets now. I need to pick some new projects to start too! I think next up will be Coronet from Knitty for CFAC, then I think a cardigan and a scarf .... I finally picked up the hood on the jacket last night so the end is in sight for that!

I love that scarf! I've not done a corsage yet, but have a hankering!

Lovely scarf, the flower is so pretty. It is so gloomy at the moment walking to work and home from work in the dark but that scarf looks really cheery.

The scarf looks great and I love the corsage, wonderful little detail. I've made Coronet and it was a really quick, easy pattern but a wonderful end result.

I would not need telling twice from a Knit it Pink feature!
Especially if it turned out like your scarf - that lovely flower!!

Love the corsage! Good to know your pets feeling better. It's heartbreaking to lose a pet and it's nice to hear one recover.
