My lovely scarf

I heart autumn. The mostest. I can hardly wait for the first crisp morning of the year, so I get the perfect excuse to grab my favourite scarf. I knitted this baby more than 10 years ago as my very first knitting project. I remember picking out the yarn in our local craft store back in Canada, where I probably first fell for dark red and plum tones. Once I got into the swing of things {two plain, two purl, repeat ad nauseum}, I bought two more skeins. Thanks to my inability to stop knitting, it grew to more than 6ft long, which means it wraps perfectly around me about a gazillion times.

It took me ages to knit, but I was so proud of myself when it was finally finished. I’ve piled this mother on me every day this week as autumn has finally set in here. So happy! I know. Most of you probably think I’m crazy for liking cold weather. Mittens, snuggles, hot drinks – c’mon!

And in case you’d like to now how the title of this post is meant to sound, just substitute ‘horse’ with ‘scarf’ …

    Haha, that made me laugh! Great scarf, and I love Autumn too – it's my favourite season. You can't beat getting cosy and snuggly – hot chocolate, snuggling under blankets… aaahhh so good!
