Helmien and I have known each other almost 20 years. We were in High School together in South Africa, went our different ways after High School and then in 2009 – 14 years later – I bumped into her at London Waterloo station. What’s the odds, and what a happy coincidence! We are obvioulsly meant to be in each other’s lives no matter where on earth we are.
It was for Helmien that I made the second infinity scarf. She saw mine last month and asked whether I would make her one as well. Of course I would!! I used the same brand of yarn, Garnstudio Drops Delight, but her scarf is in shade no. 15 (mine was shade no. 10). I used two balls of shade no. 10 that I had left over for Helmien’s scarf, because she really loved the bright greeny-blue shades. (By the way, until 29 February, Drops Delight is discounted by 25%. Just saying.)
I also followed a MyPicot Openwork and Lace pattern like I did for mine, but for Helmien’s infinity scarf I used pattern no. 2030. I can highly recommend the MyPicot patterns. Seriously. Give it a go.
Doesn’t she look beautiful?!
Here we are in our (almost matching) scarfs.
Love you, my friend!
It’s great to have friends x
Love this scarf (ok, both!). Will seriously make one for myself this winter. Just wish we could get our hands on some Drops in SA. *sigh*
Oh my, Natasja. I’ve been to the Garnstudio webpage and will be doing a bit of internet shopping as soon as I have a chance tonight….. I think I’ll buy two shades. One for myself for a scarf/cowl and one for the dungaree I want to knit….
Lovely catching up with good friends, hey. You had a fab time.
What a lovely story, lovely pictures, lovely scarves and lovely ladies 😀
