Two Scarves.

In May I completed two knitted scarves.
This one took me about twelve hours to knit.
I love the fern pattern which I found in a book I picked up somewhere sometime ago.
The book is called mon tricot:1300 Pattern Stitches Advice Hints Knitting Dictionary.
I purchased the wool from the Faulconbridge Markets around twelve months ago from a lovely lady that spins and dyes wool from her own sheep.
This scarf, on the other hand, took me twelve months to knit.

I love them both.
The second one, I have now decided, needs some tassels or a fringe of some sort.
I have a ball and a half of wool left so I'm dreaming up a nice substantial finish.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday with Lee.
Do pop over and see her lovely star HST quilt top.
