Baktus Scarf and a blogging break


Look... I finished my baktus scarf! I can't tell you how pleased I am. I finished it last night and put it straight on - it felt excellent. I LOVE IT. It is the first thing I have knitted for myself, and the first thing I have made for ages that I am not giving away immediately, and I feel really good about that! I am even contemplating only making things for Brendan, Mil and I for the months of July and August... what do you think? Selfish or sensible?!

So, along with showing off my delicious new scarf (I know it is summer, but this is England), I now have to come to terms with revealing myself to you too! Brendan saw these pictures and thought I look really sad (sad as in unhappy, not sad is in uncool I hope). I am not sad, just concentrating on the job in hand. Taking pictures of yourself is difficult, no?!
Tonight we pack, and tomorrow we leave for Cambridge, so I will be AWOL for a while, busy getting married and then busy camping for our honeymoon. We're back in a few weeks... take care and see you on the other side!
And, by the way, have you seen my new scarf?

Have a wonderful wedding, and a fabulous camping trip. They're promising sun in Cambridge for the weekend - keeping everything crossed for you. There's a big country fair on Parkers Piece in the middle of town this weekend if you fnid yourself with a spare moment!

Oh you mustn't part with the scarf - it's lovely. And for someone about to get married, you are wonderfully calm. Wishing you all the very best, and plenty of sunshine (real and metaphorical)!

I just took up knitting myself, and felt inspired to follow your lead and make a Baktus when I saw your cool photos on ravelry!

I went for green and cream, but am going to have to make another as I gave it away as a present. Gutted! You can take a look at it on my blog. Think you'll agree yours is a little neater! :)
