a leap day FO

Happy Leap Day! Doing anything special today? Me, I’m staying home with my yarn and chores. Not very exciting, but productive!

I finished this scarf for my fella awhile ago, but since he’s been wearing it every day I haven’t had much of a chance to take photos of it. He had a plain black acrylic scarf before, which is pretty shameful for the partner of a knitter. Last week on Family Day (Presidents’ Day in the US) we took a nice long walk through High Park and I took a few snaps.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: 2 skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Tart, yum!

It was a really lovely walk. We even watched a couple of swans fly around then do an awesome water landing on the pond.

    Beautiful photos of the grasses in the wind–my blood pressure is lower just looking at them. Pretty nice looking guy too, with a very manly scarf.

    I agree with everyone else – the fella, the scarf and the scenery were all quite soothing to the soul.
