My daughter asked me, quite some time ago, if I would knit her a fox scarf, the pattern was in a book she had bought.
I wasn’t in love with the pattern but because my daughter wanted it I was happy to knit it for her. I always like when my family ask me to knit for them. When I bought the wool I didn’t take much notice of what the lady in the shop picked out for me, my mind must have been elsewhere, and it was only after I got it home that I found it wasn’t pure wool. I dislike knitting in anything other than pure wool. This was 100% acrylic. Shock horror. Anyway I decided to knit it up as it was only a scarf and it did have the benefit of being anti-pilling! I realised after finishing the project that I would never knit in this type of yarn again. So something learned from the experience.
