The problem with stealth knitting is that it has to be done "stealthily". About ten minutes ago I cast off the aforementioned scarf. I did so whilst listening carefully for sounds of footsteps at our front door, signalling I's return from her morning classes at the university. The scarf has been hastily hidden behind a trunk in the living room at such strategic moments, and now I'm wondering how on earth I'm to get it blocked without giving its existence away.
While I ponder that difficulty, let me show you some photos (thank goodness, I doesn't read the blog).
This is one of those pattern gems that is delightfully simple and brilliantly clever all at the same time. I think I wrote when I last made this that I was captivated by the little points--the increase at the end of the previous row creates just the right amount of peak to each turn. This is the very best sort of knitting!
