Your Majesty Scarf
This newsletter is about knitted scarves ... for everyone :-)
Dog Fountain in Berczy Park, Toronto
Berczy Park website, 2018
 
A big round of thanks to some very skillful local ladies who knit vibrant green, wool scarves to keep our Berczy Park fountain dogs warm this winter. Led by Reet and Noreen, who organize a group of senior citizen knitters in the St Lawrence Market neighbourhood, the ladies artfully crafted six warm scarves to adorn the dog sculptures.

Christmas Scarf
I knitted this red and green scarf in December 2010, and since then it has been my favourite accessory at Christmas time. 
I put this image everywhere -
it's on Artisaknity cards,
journals, and posters.
 
This scarf was also featured in a
Knit Simple magazine

The weather outside is not that frightful yet.
 
You know there's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. You just need a good scarf to keep you warm :-)

With the help of Bob Kemp’s crew from the St Lawrence Market Neighbourhood Business Improvement Association (BIA), we got the scarves safely secured in place, just in time for the cold weather, and the BIA’s festive Cavalcade of Lights in Berczy Park, Saturday Dec 1, 5:30pm-6:30pm.
Thanks ladies for helping brighten up our park this winter and bringing a smile to every visitor!

Venice Scarf
The design for this scarf is taken from the Europe's Top Knitting Magazine Verena - Winter 2008. 
I very rarely use patterns from magazines, but in this case,
I followed almost all the instructions and recommendations. 
 
I changed the colour a little: not pure white but faded shade of off-white.
 
The two lace patterns were used.
 
Scarf length size is 10 x 205 sm.
 
I started knitting the scarf on the plane and finished it in Toronto.

The pattern for the scarf is one of the the most simple lace patterns  - the Horseshoe knitting stitch.
 
I made it last year.

A New Scarf for Christmas
... so I did - I made a new scarf from the leftover yarn. Apparently I had a lot, and it turned out to be very long - which is great!
 
The yarn I used was:
 
DK Merino Blend -Pure New Wool by KING COLE LTD., UK 
 
and 
 
SANDES GARN 100% Alpakka, Norway

Feels like Felt
I had three shades of green and a wonderful 'felt-like yarn" to insert in between the green stripes.
