A birthday gift for a very dear friend of mine whose birthday came slightly before Christmas. He wanted a black and white bulky scarf, and so I treated myself to a trip to the haberdashery department at John Lewis on Oxford Street and got some Rowan Chunky wool. The wool is ridiculously sexy, just try knitting with it on some really thick needles and you'll know what I mean! >;) (Quite appropriate that this friend is very, very gay!) I stuck to plain old garter and the scarf practically made itself in a handful of hours.
