a string of wool and violin . . .

I knit this triangle neck warmer / scarf while waiting for Lize at the ballet classes. It is done in gartner stitch. The yarn is Elle Elite - 50% wool and 50% cotton. I'm genuinely fascinated by its practical decorative use. It looks cozy and fits neatly underneath your state of the art winter jacket. Claude took the photo and nearly decapitated me.

Everyday I drive to and fro from the office in Paarl and this is what keeps me company and sooth my emotions, especially when I'm running late in the rat race. With our little rodent, Lize, not exactly being Speedy Conzalis, some motherly stress is incurred on the way between school and office - after dropping off our learner-dreamer semi-late for school for the umpteenth time.
