neckerchiefBEAUTY

I really like september  because of its weather: comfortably warm,  light breezes every now and then , gorgeous sunsets ….

But my throat used to disagree with me, in facts  it used to  punish me with a strong laryngitis because I ride my bike to work in the cool early autumn morning air :-(

At last I found a win – win solution: in September morning I wear a very nice knitted neckerchief like the one in the picture; it’s warm yet light, cocconing yet  protecting effectively my throat :-)

It’s a very old but easy pattern, found out and translated by Mr. Franklin Habit  from Mrs Gaugain’s Miniature Knitting, Netting and Crochet Book dated A.D.1843!

You have to try to knit it: I bet you’ll have a very nice time knitting and, afterwards, good feelings wearing it …

So: go to the knitting needles  and enjoy yourself !!!
