Annis Scarf

This scarf is part of my latest attempt to learn to Dress Myself.  Maybe at forty-three, I can become fashionable!

I recently purged my wardrobe of two lawn and leaf bags full of stuff I never wore.  I don’t know why I thought I needed four jeans skirts.  I did need more of this kind of thing, though.  This scarf is so perfect, adding color without a lot of frou, adding that extra something that gives a gray pullover and wool pants a reason to be smashing.  Just putting it on the dressmaker’s dummy made me feel a little bit French.  The pattern is Annis by Susannah IC.  I finished knitting it last night while I was watching the best Halloween movie ever.  Johnny, I love you!

I love that with just a few yarnovers and k2togs, I can make something that looks like that.  I can’t wait to wear it!
