L’écharpe à trous

I am not pleased.

Cat Daddy and I have a present box in the attic and, every time we see something that reminds us of one of our friends or family members, we buy it, put it in the box and save it until Christmas or their birthday.

I spent November and December working flat-out to knit a scarf for someone in time for their late January birthday and, after completing it, I put it in our present box. However, a certain little sod has somehow managed to bypass my cleverly-constructed barricade, climb into the box, roll all over the scarf and make holes in it. So not only is it covered in cat hair, but it looks as if I drink-knitted it when I didn’t.

Cat Daddy: “I thought it was a little strange when I saw that massive cushion in the middle of the floor.” The cushion, which was the barricade, is about 78 times the size of Louis Catorze and there’s no way he could move it on his own. Or so I thought.

Anyway, I don’t have time to knit another one, so I have no option but to hand over a holey, hairy scarf. Thank goodness the recipient likes Catorze. Because I’m not sure I do at the moment.

      1. Block again. Blocking is the process of laying out a wool scarf damp with pins in to give it shape. Ravelry.com is a good place to look for more info. This works for wool but not acrylic, I presume the scarf is wool?

  1. That sucks to spend so much time working on something to have it ruined like that. My wife once bought a new shirt and hung it on a hook over our bedroom door. We then closed the door at night and in the morning Chris had poked a bunch of holes in her shirt. That was bad but if she knitted that shirt it would have been so much worse.
