Bachelor Nick Episode 9: Raven’s Scarf in Finland!

While I am very excited about all the winter ensembles in Finland and Raven’s scarf, first I must ask: what the hell is The Bachelor doing to the format? What a useless hour long episode! The rose ceremony looked miserably cold, windy, and had NO SUSPENSE whatsoever.

We know Rachel is the next Bachelorette (yay!) so we know she’s not going to win. They show Raven on her fantasy suite date before the rose ceremony, so obviously she’s not going home. They show a promo for an interview with Corinne on GMA, so the very little suspense left was completely gone before the rose ceremony! Big shock, Corrine is gone. And then she gives a weirdly almost feminist speech about never kissing up to a guy again. I think it’s safe to say Corrine, you won’t have to worry about kissing up to some 36 year old guy dating 29 other women again. You’ll only have to kiss up to some guy while 2 or 3 other women pursue him on Bachelor in Paradise this summer.

But at least they went to Finland! Why on earth they thought that was romantic or interesting given that there is literally only a couple of hours of sunlight, I don’t know. But at least we have SO MUCH KNITWEAR! Right?

There’s Raven’s ridiculous hat. I assume, since I don’t live in the coldest place, perhaps this type of hat makes more sense in FRIGID climates. Fine, I’ll admit it’s a cute, playful hat, but there’s no way in hell I’m spending time making one. Raven’s scarf on the other hand?


Even crumpled on a table Raven’s scarf is cute:

They are literally talking about laundry. That is how boring this episode was.

Knitting Ideas:

I stumbled across this series of stranded cowls designed by Elizabeth Davis and I loved them! I’m sure you could buy the pattern and adapt as a scarf.

In conclusion why is the turtleneck trying to eat Nick’s face?
