Last year we had great fun doing the Irish Photo Rally for the first time, even though I did stay at home and knit a few of the days that Ryan headed out to some of the points!
We went to the presentation dinner a few weeks ago and saw photos from everyone else that did the rally, there was such a fantastic sense of adventure and fun that I decided I would add a twist to my entry this year - I hadn’t realised that a pillion could enter separately before.
And so the motoscarf was born. I’m combining the concept of having my picture taken knitting at each of the 24 points, and knitting in a colour that matches the colour of the sky at the time (well, the closest i have from a selection of rialto chunky colours that I bought, anyway) like the sky scarf by Lea Redmond. By the end of it, i should manage a buttonable scarfy cowly thing, but it’s not about the end result really, it’s about the journey…
I’ll be adding progress pics here as they are taken but also hopefully I’ll be blogging about each of the points as I go here:
