Last winters scarves come out

Over the Easter break I was swimming in the ocean, wading with the dog and kayaking and now two days later it's freezing cold.  Weird weather.  I wore this scarf last night and when I was digging it out I realised I had four scarves that I knit late last winter that I never photographed and blogged about so here goes.  This is the free Quaasar pattern by Chrissy Prange available on Ravelry, knit from Noro Kureyon Sock in a discontinued colour which is very bright but it goes with so many things.

This one is knit from Noro Silk Garden Sock in colour 279, a lovely dusty combination.  The pattern is my own creation because I just wanted to knit the whole ball and not waste a bit, finished it with a picot cast off.  The eyelet rows started off further apart and then became closer as the colour bands became narrower.

Another Noro Kureyon Sock was used for the Hitchhiker pattern by Martina Behm, also available on Ravelry but not for free.  I really love this modern asymmetrical neck warmer, it is very easy to wear.

This final one is very lacy and feminine, it is the Calais Shawl by Judy Marples, another free download on Ravelry.  This is also knit from sock wool but I cannot remember which one, I know it is New Zealand yarn that was hand dyed and I bought it in Melbourne.  If I can find the skein label I'll let you know. 

I've just noticed the creases in a few of these photos, sorry, they have been stored in a vacuum bag.  I have a lot of scarves to store and not much room for them so flat is good!  I wonder which scarves with what yarn I'll knit this year. 

These photos were all taken today at a great local lookout on a very rusty ships anchor.  My home is visible from this lookout, a bit further to the left.  It was fabulously windy and made photographing these lovely light scarves very tricky.
