Anna’s Scarf

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We got our first snow here this weekend and Anna was super excited, even though it was only a dusting. I was secretly excited too as I love snow and we don’t see much of it here in North-western Germany. I miss the snowy, white winters we used to have when I was still living in upstate New York. I quickly knit up this scarf/cowl for Anna with some bits of yarn I had left over from making this hat for myself last winter and it came out very soft, comfy and warm. I connected it at the ends to make a tube so I wouldn’t have to worry about it falling off. It’s quite stretchy since it’s knitted in garter stitch and this is probably one of  the easiest and quickest things I’ve ever knit and a good way to use up any of your yarn left overs.
