Skinny Scarf inspired by Mauritian Meat Market


Skinny Scarf
Hook Size: 5mm
Yarn: Vinnis Bambi in Sea Green; Vinnis Nikkim in Grapefruit; Kismet Strawberries and Cream in Charcoal

I will write up the pattern as soon as I am finished with the scarf - I am not sure where the pattern is leading me yet, but I simply had to reproduce the raw colours of the Poultry, Fish and Meat Market in Port Louis, Mauritius whilst the tones were fresh in my mind. 
I am glad to report that we are not big meat eaters here at the Pigtails Palace although we eat some. I cook Thai, Indian, Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisine for the most with a focus on fruit, vegetables and pulses.  Have a great week!






This is Neechee, our male Maine Coon.  He is now just over 4 months old and sport 6 toes on each foot as is the case with some of his breed!

  5. Grrr for the images, I understand that it might lead to dislike and upset. Most travelers to Mauritius never step foot outside the generic resorts and therefore fail to realise that real life with all its complexities, rawness, beauty and soul is actually taking place right there. A quick google shows almost zero documentary or street photos. Please come back again! xxxx
