I started knitting a scarf while I was still living at Grafton doing my undergrad (so that would be...  2004?) and got to about two thirds or three quarters of the way through the pattern I had made before other stuff became more important.  Since then it has been sitting in a bag under my bed, in my wardrobe, or on the couch waiting to be finished.  Last week I got it out again and Mum and I figured out where I was up to.  Unfortunately, I've lost the pattern I made, except for a portion I have printed.  Fortunately, that's all I really need, as I remember intending to simply finish that portion, and then repeat what I have at the other end to finish it.  I wasn't going to post about it until I had finished it (and so won't put a picture up yet), but I really wanted to share what I have literally just found online and what will definitely be my next knitting project.

I want this yesterday.  It's an awesome-looking DNA double helix scarf, and the creator has been kind enough to publish it online for everyone to try.  I don't think I'll use the same colour (it's a great colour for a guy, but I think us girls can get away with brighter more fun colours in scarves), but I may change my mind.  Anyhow, I can't wait to try it, and as it's suddenly a lot cooler (at least in the mornings), I can happily sit and knit while watching the breakfast news.  If anyone has suggestions for colours, feel free to comment!  And if I find it easy enough, and you supply the wool, I'd be happy to make one for anyone - it's something to keep me from baking more cupcakes!

AMENDED:  I noticed the link didn't work...  I don't know if that just happened or if it was always wrong, but it's fixed now.

  1. Hi! Thanks for the comment on my Criminal Suspects post, I still can't believe it when I look back, we said the same thing as you, it's so easy to get a floor plan of a shopping centre, although why anyone would want to blow up a crappy shopping centre in Hull is beyond me.

    Love the helix scarf - when craft and science collide!
