Handmade Monday #40

I missed last weeks Handmade Monday because I was very poorly I spent 3 days in bed.  I'm slowly getting better still have fits of coughing.  My niece told me I sounded like a trumpet when blowing my nose - I'd say more like a fog horn lololol.  
So my contribution to this weeks handmade Monday is a scarf I knitted for said cheeky niece :).  It's made with Indie wool and done in garter stitch over 15 stitches on 51/2 needles.  I've added some dangly bits to each end and sewn some buttons along the bottom at the request of my niece (she chose the buttons) - she's a creative little thing 6 going on 16.

As you can see it's quite funky and colourful.
Thank you for popping over to read my post and if you would like to see other creative peoples work why not pop on over to Wendy's blog to see what everyone else has been up to.  

Please do leave a comment it's always nice to hear what you think.

I love that scarf, the color makes me think of paper bags and natural things! The buttons are so fun. :) I hope you feel better soon. And you know, you are the person who I stumbled upon on flickr who introduced me to Handmade Monday nearly a year ago! And for that, I thank you! :)

Hope you're feeling better now. That scarf is lovely and that soft honey colour a perfect foil for those bright buttons.
