Baktus Scarf

First off, thank you for your words of encouragement on Sunday's triathlon. The weather was absolutely ghastly and I really didn't want to go. I sat knitting in bed that morning and I could hear the wind and rain lashing at the windows. Everyone else was asleep and I did wonder what the hell I was doing. But, I did do it, and in a time I was fairly pleased with. The swim went well, the run went really well, it was just the cycling and transitions in between that were totally rubbish! Ah well, I've entered another two this year, so I shall have to get out training on that bike a bit more.

And that knitting... a baktus scarf. Pattern here from Strikkelise. And considering this weather we've got at the moment, it seems a scarf in May is not such a mad idea after all.

The yarn is really lovely Jaeger Baby Merino in shades 203 and 189.

that scarf looks like a fun one to do, especially given how much its been rainy and miserable recently - especially loving that you chose to do two colours rather than one :D

I am totally impressed that you have done triathlon!! How fantastic! If I were to swim, I probably won't be able to run afterwards....
BTW, the scarf looks lovely. It's so nice knitting in bed in the morning.
Hopefully the weather will be nice during the bankholiday weekend!
