Even though at the time I was heavily pregnant I couldn’t miss a trip to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Darling Harbour back in June. One of the things I bought was some balls of Katia Ondas knitting tape in two different colours.
This is amazing yarn that I had seen on the internet and wanted to get my hands on some to try out. To make a beautiful knitted ruffle scarf you only need one ball of yarn. It is a mesh type tape that you open up and knit it in a garter stitch using only the top edge of the knitting tape. In 2 hours or less you have a lovely ruffled knit scarf. It was so easy that I knitted two scarfs in one day.
I was going to add the scarfs to my gift giving stash but found it hard to resist when my daughters fell in love with them and begged to have them.
Besides wearing them they have been pretending that the scarfs are Rupunzel’s long long hair…
… and they are even great to use when pretending to be a cheerleader! I love seeing how children use their imagination to turn simple items into other objects.
