Well, I hadn't heard of Hamm, but when I looked it up on Google Maps I found a few familiar place names. On my first trip to Germany I stayed in Obernhof an der Lahn - or should that be am Lahn. The second time round I was in Heiligenkirchen in der Nahe von Detmold. I was doing a summer placement in a children's home there as part of my university course. There was an outdoor swimming pool in Bielefeld which we took the kids to most days. There was a path to it through a wood, so it was a pleasant walk. You could also walk to Detmold by the same path.

Pity I wasn't doing much knitting at the time and didn't think to take it with me - I could have done it during my off-duty hours! Maybe even taught the kids!

Looking forward to seeing pictures of the scarf!

BTW, how does one 'knit in the round' on 2 straight needles????
The most common, convenient way to knit in the round on 2 straight needles (Tubular Double Knitting):
Cast on 1/2 of the total number of sts (as in one side of a tube scarf) - place these sts in the left hand as F (front sts now)
With the working yarn and the right needle held BEHIND the left needle: *co B (1 back st), slip F - across the needle
These 2 needle passes make the cast on foundation for an open tube. You will now knit the B and slip the F in 2 needle passes for each complete round. This makes a Reverse Stockinette Stitch pattern. You may complete the tube and turn it inside out for a RS Stockinette Stitch pattern.
I like to call this "flatfold" to distinguish it from double think double knitting. The work will have a fold at each end of the needle.
