… an invitation to a job interview, good news, travel reimbursed, great news, a last minute weekend organised to visit friends while I am there.

… gifts needed for hosts, chocolates purchased that lack the personal touch, something additional would be good. Scotland is cold, a scarf is always welcome, hardly time to knit something, but friends always admire my jersey scarf/necklaces.

…fabric stash visited, a cheerful bright pink jersey chosen, cutting board and rotary cutter gathered, ruler lined up, 10 strips cut. Strips are pulled, causing the material to roll up, ends are sewn together, first at each end then both ends are joined. A few hand stitches will be sturdy enough. An extra strip of fabric cut and curled, tied to the necklace and wrapped to cover the join.

… gift wrapped and ready to go. One down, now I need another idea…

… you can see how to do this in more detail here, but I remembered to take photos today…
