And now the time has come

In less than 24 hours we'll be leaving for Queensland. Are we ready? Absolutely not. I even have to go into work - to do work on my holiday - just before we leave. Nuts.

The scarves were given to friends at lunch today and they seemed to go down a treat. I managed to finish blocking the Boteh just before I left for Civic.

Boteh scarf

Pattern: Boteh scarf from Interweave Crochet Spring 2007

Yarn: Cleckheaton Bamboo 2 1/2 balls (so about 125g in total)

Hook: 4 mm bamboo

Notes: As lovely as the bamboo was to work with, this pattern is probably best (and probably would keeps it's shape better) with sock wool.

Finished, blocked and ready to gift

I'll be sitting on a beach at Alex until the 27th, but I would like to wish all you lovely people a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy holiday (if you are taking one). This year has been a blast craft-wise and I hope there are many more adventurous years like this ahead.


  1. Have a lovely christmas and holiday Michelle. The Boteh looks delicious, again!

  2. your break sounds like it's going to be wonderful. Have a lovely time.

    Gorgeous scarves too.

  3. Safe journeys and a very happy Christmas to you! The beach thing sounds pretty bloody brilliant :)

    Those Boteh scarves are wonderful, BTW...
