Making a knitting pattern

I have been making a proper pattern of my confetti-coloured 'Riches to Rags' scarf (previously discussed in this post) for a sweet lady I met recently who loves to knit for relaxation and is going through a very difficult time in her life.
I'll put it in the etsy shop one day soon too, although I can't make pdf files yet and don't think that anyone on my side of the equator is going to be remotely interested anyway in these particularly glorious last days of spring.

And speaking of knitting, here is a photo of my minimalist (ha!) lounge room. Kind of like Where's Wally, see if you can spot the beautiful knitted tree cushion by Sara Carr which my brother bought for me.

(A highly appropriate gift considering that a few months before he took my Sara Carr pencil scarf before I ever got to wear it. Surely he must be the only six feet plus dark hairy male in the whole world who has ever worn that item.)

I can recognize your style in your happy, colourful lounge.
Your scarfs are special.

Thank you so much for your generous comments Pilgrim, Jen, Renilde and Rigel (Rigel for some reason yours didn't publish - ?).

Pilgrim I can really see now that the colour palette is very "you"!

And Jen -- DOWN with minimalism!!!!

Dear Elaine,
It's SOOOOOO lovely to hear from you! There has been many a time when I have wondered how you are, and then I have gone back to my work and not actually LOOKED (she writes sheepishly). And I have been thinking of you too, with Ireland in the news these days. I do hope that considering the circumstances, a project finished and the wintry weather you will come down and visit soon for an ouzo, or at least a cup of tea.
Give it some thought.
