How to tie a scarf and help A Hundred Ravens!

[Translate] As we’re getting into the coldest part of the winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, we find ourselves bundling up to protect against the cold that comes with it. What better way to do that than with a super scarf?! What’s a super scarf? Well, it’s one that’s a minimum of 100″ long and 10″ wide (no, I don’t know who decided on this).

I myself have been in Vancouver for a few weeks but mostly in the UK. As luck would have it, I had a fantastic month in Vancouver but missed the said week in the UK. The good news is that I’ll be heading back to Vancouver in time for FALL!! And for the KnitCity yarn festival in early October. And maybe Rhinebeck? Or maybe to Barcelona for a knitting festival there? It’s […]
