I finished my Sojourn Falls Scarf a couple of days ago and I am very pleased how well the blocking turned out. For some strange reason I never believe that after blocking the piece will stay in form, but it does and I still get excited about that :)
Isn't the pattern just gorgeous? And I love that despite the multicoloured yarn, the pattern is still very much visible.
Now, all I need is the perfect occasion to wear the scarf - currently I am thinking my long summer dress would work. Naturally I will take pictures when this baby gets its first outing. In the meantime a poorly set up picture of Sojourn hangin' around has to do.
Before I go I have two more things to share though.
At work we are sometimes given little presents, like calenders, cuddly toys, plastic aeroplanes form the airlines we have contracts with. The other day Lufthansa brought us a handful of silver plastic pots with earth inside....uhm ya, we all looked kinda puzzled until we realised that there were also seeds in the pot and you could grow your own peppers.
You know what? I thought that was a great little gift and in the office we have line of little pepper plants growing all over the place. I took mine home though, because they are going to live in my kitchen and hopefully spawn me something to eat :)
Here is a picture of my seedlings right now - I think they will need rehousing soon
And last, but by no means least - I have found a new favourite drink.
It is sooooooooooo refreshing (dangerously so, as one tends to drink it like pop as it does not taste of alcohol) and the combination of orange with spice gives you a Christmas kind of feeling in Summer.
Oh and before I forget - for some more finished crochet/knitting projects, head over to Tami's Blog
