Manos Scarf





I don't have enough projects on the go at the moment so I started two more on the weekend. This is my new winter scarf to be - made out of special Manos del Urugauy wool from New York. Well I bought it in Purl but its not originally from New York - its from Uruguay where it is hand made by a collective of women artists. Its soooo soft and squishy. My knitting guru Pauline suggested the mistake rib stitch and I think its showing off the colours perfectly. A nice brainless project perfect for CSI and Lost viewing although Lost almost lost me last night - why is only every second or third week any good?! I'm persevering with it ...but only because there's nothing much else on.

That wool is absolutely gorgeous. The colours are fab. Wow. I haven't knitted in years, but now I feel almost tempted to get my hands on some needles and some wool!

As ever, Pauline has made a great suggestion. I love the colours of the Manos yarn you're using. It's lovely stuff to knit with, isn't it?

This wool is definitely worth taking up knitting for - very nice to the touch.
