Monday is usually not my favorite day of the week, but I'm quite happy today. I just received a phone call from Hannah! She's still alive despite big spiders in the house. It's quite overwhelming for her to be in Australia right now. She feels a little like an outcast, even though she has friends there. What a great adventure for her, I'm a little jealous.
Meanwhile, thanks to all your well wishes my left hand is MUCH better. I'm still giving it some more rest, and try to do the same for my right hand, since it's the one picking up the slack from my left hand. I've tried a little spinning over the weekend, with many breaks, but didn't even think of picking up the sticks. Hook and granny square are packed away for whenever. So sad.
Well, as promised I've still some FO's to show you. This is Hattie's Rose Garden scarf, made in October/November 2009! Oy!
I've received this lovely yarn from Bea as a gift for test knitting some socks for her. She's got a new and wonderful sock design coming up soon, but I'm not going to be able to test knit this time. Another sad.
Scarves dent to get boring, just because they are so long! This one kept me going because I was looking forward to dropping stitches on purpose. :o) In the end I had to fight each and every stitch down the ladder, but I showed them who's boss! Very satisfying to do so.
pattern: Hattie's Rose Garden (rav link) by Cynthia Joseph, it's a FREE pattern, you'll just have to send an e-mail to get it
yarn: Bea's Farben, color Erdbeerfeld, 60% wool, 20% silk, 20% bamboo, 100g/420m (I used all of it, just a few inches left)

I cast on 51 stitches.
I like how the dark color zig-zagged throughout the scarf. It's a lovely scarf, and a fun knit.
I'll be back soon!
