Gorgeous! I loved knitting this scarf as well.


Beautiful and well done. Can you tell me what is the name of the book for this pattern !


The pattern is from Scarf Style, by Pam Allen (1931499543), available from Interweave Press or from Amazon.com at


Thank you so much Jeanne, I will certainly order it ! :-)


The scarf came out great!
Also, I LOVE the V.W. knitting picture and am very partial to the word "bluestocking". You did a great job with the heading of your blog!


This ia a superb and fascinationg piece of art work I love the details, I'm a novice and hope to create and work this pattern. Xea


you inspired me to make a forbes forest too--in classic elite inca alpaca, a kind of orangy-brown color with green undertones, I think they call it harvest. At first I thought the scarf was going to be too itchy, but it came out very soft after I dunked it in some warm water and let it dry for a couple of days. Its for my son--thanks for the inspiration!

  • "'Then I am the first,' cried Pullings with infinite satisfaction. 'Let me wish you and Mrs. Aubrey all the joy in the world.' He grasped Jack's limp, wondering hand, wrung it numb, and showed the printed page, reading aloud, '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son and heir,"' following the words with his finger.

    'Give it here,' said Jack. He grasped the magazine, sloped the page to the light and pored over it intently.

    '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son."

    'Well, I'll be damned. God bless me. Lord, Lord … upon my word and honour … I'll be damned to Hell and back again … strike me down. Killick, Killick, rouse out a bottle of champagne -- pass the word for the Doctor -- here, Killick, there's for you -- God love us all -- ha, ha, ha.'

    Killick took the handful of money, put it slowly into his pocket with a look of extreme suspicion and walked out of the cabin, his lips pursed in disapproval. Jack leapt from his seat, took several turns fore and aft, chuckling from time to time, his mind filled with mingled love, happiness, fulfilment, and a most piercing nostalgia."
