I didn't mean to let you wait for my next blog post, but there was so much to do, the weather went from sizzling hot, to pretty cold. What that means is, that blocked items are slow to dry now, since I haven't turned on the heating yet.
I've been knitting, some of it I can't show you yet, but this scarf saw some sunshine today and I could take it off, of the blocking wires.
This project was a LOVE project from the moment I ripped open the envelope, and found this breathtaking roving. I started spinning the same day. It's merino/tencel blend, but only 2oz. It was a challenge to find the perfect pattern for this yarn, and I wanted to knit this right away.
So, here it is:
pattern: free Morning Surf Scarf by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer
yarn: my own handspun, 2 oz merino/tencel, 2-ply lace weight ( 25 WPI), ~ 216yds
size after blocking: 6.5" x 50"
The roving was Spunky Eclectic Fiber of the month Club, "Aspen". I love it!
