It's good my name isn't Grendel, or else this scarf would have killed me

Damn you Blogger.

*ahem*

So, you know those fall days, chilly, but sunny, which hint of some more summer?

























This was not one of those. It's still summer.

It was way too hot to model a (mostly) wool scarf, But I tried.












And failed. I mean, really, out of 20+ shots of me wearing the damn thing, the only semi decent one is of my back. And my West Coast socks-with-sandals laissez-faire attitude.And because I'm told some people like these...
Pattern: Beowulf. I made it up.
Yarn: Van Dyck. 3 and a bit balls.
Needles: Aero... 7mm?
Dimensions: Taller than me, but not as wide.
Odds and Sodds: Provisional cast on. Cables. Actually a Saoxn braid. The SAME Saxon braid adornign the collar of a sweater in the new Rowan. I think.

I love it. The colour, the cable work, everything. So much so that I'm thinking of doing one for me. Good thing I'm shorter ;-)

Oh, that is great! Wow... to do a scarf that is longer than you are --- that takes perseverence! Gotta give you credit for that!
And all those cables! So now you won't have any fear of doing them, right? Perfect project to learn a technique.
Okay, now let's start on that Aran sweater ---
