Turtles swimming toward the shoreline are just the ticket for the wonderful Key Largo friend that I am creating this for. She’s a knitting fan and tortoise lover, so this is close as I can get to knitting something she’ll love. The beautiful BFL and silk yarn make this scarf so cozy and warm for her *ahem* cold *ahem* winter days. (Can it really get cold in Florida?)

 

Notes on Project

As much as I hate knitting garter shawls, I loved the turtles in this Turtle Beach pattern by Heather Anderson. Creating more than one turtle swimming to shore took away some of the boredom of knitting this pattern. And modifying the edge to recreate waves on the shore was another. I doubt I’ll knit this again but it was just the right pattern for a special lady and I couldn’t resist making it for her. I hope she gets a lot of use from it.
