Some people* are under the impression that Norway is a winter wonder land, and as soon as you get close to December the whole country will be covered in snow. You'd expect nothing less from the nice little spot on this planet where Santa has chosen to live, would you?
Well, here's proof of the contrary. Picture taken December 2nd on a hike in woods where I live, testing out wether "My so called scarf"'s is good for hiking.
See that? Pretty christmas trees in the wild, but no snow!
The scarf... It's been my out of the house-project for quite some time. I started it back in October. Overall, it's a good scarf, though a bit short.
The main purpose of this projeck: Knit up the two pretty balls of Rowan Tapestry that I had in the stash, to see what it looks and feels like knit up and how it wears. Because I thought I wanted a larger garment in this yarn and wanted to test knit something small first. Well, I don't really plan on knitting with Tapestry again any time soon. Though it is a wool and soybean yarn, feels more like a mohair blend. Hairy and tangle prone (I had yarn barf that stuck on itself). It also has a dry feel to it. It's hard to describe but if you have some Tapestry handy try holding it up to your ear and give it a gentle squeeze... Hear** that "dry" sound? I don't like that at all! I can kind of hear it with my hands when I knit too. So there will not be a pretty vest, bolero or sweater out of Tapestry for me, no way!
I've been writing a bit about when hubby is taking pictures of me and my knitwear. I can not for the life of me understand how other bloggers get their partners to take such pretty pictures. Here's the best picture out of the first 8 he took when I told him to focus on the scarf, not me.
Not my best piranha impression, I can do so much better!

**Am I the only one who listen to yarn this way? I do it every time I meet a new yarn, straight after I've sniffed it.
