Chunky Wool and Big Needles= Fast Progress!

So remember my post yesterday when I showed you the wool and needles my lovely husband bought me to make a scarf with? Well I am very pleased to say that a few hours each day since Sunday evening has led to this much scarf...

I have had to fold it over to get it in the frame as I had no one here to hold it whilst I took a pic but hence to say it is nearly complete YAY! I am about 2/3 of the way done and I am loving it. So simple and so fast.
I am also loving my new size 10 bamboo needles. It is the first time I have used bamboo as I have only been knitting since January and I am loving them. No clickity clack as I go, so light and so much prettier, which of course is the most important thing ;)

Hope you are all well Em xx


  1. Wow Emma, how handy is this! Could you let me know some of the details as I was thinking of knitting one with Rowan Big Wool but at just under eight pounds a ball it could get expensive. Can you tell me the amount of stitches, how many ball used, what length you've go etc so I can figure it out, a rough idea would really help. I always knit Doctor Who scarves you see, really, really long! But with 100% merino? It may not be worth it.
    Oh by the way that plasma ball was 19.99 from argos, a bargain!
