Alex is knitting her very first garter stitch scarf with a llama/wool chunky yarn. It’s the same colours as her necklace…so come the winter she’ll replace her necklace with a beautiful handknit scarf!

Alex (my work experience student) & I have been researching the next seasons shades. These Mirasol Miski shades are the perfect ones for the muted theme & remind me of the beautiful Yorkshire moors :-)
