My adult DD has just requested a long 'real wool' scarf for her upcoming birthday. Isn't real wool itchy (and expensive)?
I only usually do basic knitted squares for charity, made from oddments of wool - which suits me fine as I only knit when watching TV and go wrong with patterns, but I think she over estimates my abilities and I don't want to disappoint her.
She's given me a scarf she already owns for an idea of size (12" x 72") and told me the colour - plain mustard/curry, but I don't know what kind of wool to get or how to estimate how much I'll need (I understand that batch colours can vary) or needle sizes.
I would really like to WoW her with the results.
Any suggestions please (I have 5 weeks).
