It is fine weather for ducks here today - earlier, it hailed so hard that the ground appeared to be covered in snow!
The weekend promises more of the same, so why not stay inside, make a nice cup of tea, and knit up this free, wonderful scarf pattern I have created? It only takes one ball of Kidsilk Haze, and makes a perfect gift.
And to celebrate the publishing of this pattern, I'm having a giveaway: Three lucky readers will receive a print out of this pattern, plus a ball of Kidsilk Haze in this gorgeous green shade (Fern) to make their own scarf! Simply leave a comment by Monday to be in the draw!
