A rare event

Not the wisteria flowering - you get that every year.

A rectangular scarf knitted by me only appears about every 2-3 years.






But that may be about to change.....


A lot of the people I'd like to knit for would like rectangles, but I don't like making classic rectangles because of the way the weight of the scarf pulls down on the needle; I tried knitting lengthwise, but I didn't like the big long cast-on, but now I may have the answer.

Knitting them on bias.....

More comfortable to hold, less turning, but no long cast-on.

So,  who knows, there may even be another rectangle scarf before we see the wisteria again...
