I just realised that I forgot to post to say that I finally finished the Henry scarf for my Dad! I don’t have photos yet thanks to almost never being home during daylight hours at the moment but will put some up as soon as I can.
I was beginning to worry that it wasn’t going to be done for Christmas so I’m hugely relieved. It’s come out beautifully and if it hadn’t taken so unbelievably long, I’d definitely make another one. (Sorry, Steven, there’s no way you’re getting one now.)
I made it in Jaeger Matchmaker 4 ply, which was quite nice yarn to work with although it did have a tendency to split at times. If I was going to make another one, I would be tempted to go for something softer (I wonder if Wensleydale Longwool comes in 4 ply?) and I would definitely use a more interesting colour. Charcoal grey is all well and good and my Dad will definitely wear it but it could do with a little more life in it.
