I've been knitting a New Zealand possum wool scarf off and on for a few months. I didn't know when I was given the wool that possums are not native to New Zealand, hence they are hunted and their fur is used in, among other things, a wool blend for yarns.
I thought I would try a diagonal mesh stitch for this scarf as it has worked well before. The only thing is, if you start daydreaming while knitting, as I often do, a few extra stitches seem to be born along the way, and the scarf ends up getting a bit wider, which is what has happened to mine lately. Oh well, I'll just decrease a bit towards the end.
