Wow my knitting mojo has come back with a vengeance! I seriously have had very little desire to knit this past year since J was born. Personally I think I was too sleep deprived and distracted. But now I really look forward to my knitting time after J goes to bed. The only problem is that knitting has NEVER been relaxing for me - it's way too exciting to be relaxing, so I end up staying up much too late!!
I've been scouring through Ravelry more than ever lately and came across a very prolific and talented knitter in Malaysia whose knits are very flattering, well executed and of course are super cute. While checking out all of her FOs, I came across her scarf version of the fan bookmark crochet pattern. I immediately loved the colours and was keen to use some Noro Kureyon since I've never knit with it before. So after work I stopped by Yuzawaya (Japan's largest craft store, which just happens to be directly above our train station so I can pop in there very easily on the way home from work - this equals danger, danger!) and bought some Kureyon. I checked out all of the other colourways but had already fallen for colourway 215 which Loopy had used!!
This is a very fast and easy project which would make a great gift for yourself or someone else. Shame the Kureyon is so scratchy though - it would be THE perfect scarf if it was soft and cozy.
So here is my copycat 'fan bookmark' scarf:
