Yup, procrastination. I have been procrastinating over most areas of my life recently it would seem - hopefully this was a January-related affliction and will dissipate now....
Unfortunately the procrastination extends into the knitting sphere and so Rayne is still not finished - the knitting is done but it needs to have the ends sewn in and a blocking/ironing before I can really get a feel for whether or not it works as a garment!
Whilst procrastinating with my main project though I have worked on a little side project - using some of the extra yarn left over from Rayne. Without further ado then, I present the Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf in Marble DK:
A little bonus close-up:
I've been looking for a scarf that will look nice with the jacket in the photos and it struck me that this shade of yarn (James C Brett Marble DK shade MT6) would work very well. With the help of Ravelry (here is my project's Ravelry page) I found the Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf Pattern (bit of a mouthful!). Then I cast on using 5mm needles and slightly more stitches than suggested for a wider finished scarf.
The knitting went very quickly - I tended to knit one triangle at a time which was quite a manageable chunk - and soon enough the scarf was done. Huzzah! Now I plan to knit some simple garter stitch mitts and possibly also a beanie to go with the scarf - hopefully I won't procrastinate too much with those!
