What is she doing?

You might think when you see this picture.

This is the left-over from a brioche stitch alpaca scarf I knitted for my then boyfriend Rolf at least ten years ago. (I bet it's been longer.) When you have tried brioche stitch you know that it is a very slow way of knitting things and a labour of love. Even though it's bad-ass cold here in Montreal Rolf won't wear the scarf. He would wear a hat, though.

I am sure once I have frogged the whole thing I will have enough yarn for a manly hat and a tubular thingie Rolf prefers to wear instead of a scarf.

Let me tell you, this is the first time I am unravelling something I have knitted long ago and it feels a bit unsettling. Maybe when I am done with the new hat I will feel better...

See, VĂ©ronik, I am taking your advice: hmm, alpaca!!

*Rippit* Don't think of it as unsettling, think of it as liberating! :)

Can't wait to see that hat and new scarf! It is lovely fiber!
