FO Friday #50 - Across the Water

Happy Friday everyone!

Last year, I got the chance to visit a lovely yarn shop in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. My very good friend had just moved back to Australia from Calgary and I was already missing her terribly. I saw some Silky Wool in a lovely shade of blue and knew I wanted to make something for her. It only took me about ten months to get it done...

It's winter in Melbourne and July 1st was my friend's birthday. I'm really pleased with the gift I made for her. I hope it fits the bill for the "cooler" months down under. And now that she has her scarf, I can finally show it...

Pattern: Cherry Leaf Scarf by Mary Ann Stephens
This pattern is free!

Colourway: 10
I knit until I finished two skeins


It is going to be a gloriously sunny weekend here for the start of the Calgary Stampede. We plan to make the most of it. I hope you have some lovely weekend plans you are looking forward to, and I hope they include checking out more FO's through Tami's Amis : )

Cheers, Nikki

PS: I just came across this great article in the Washington Post. Love it!
