Last year (sounds like a long time ago) you might remember that I received a lovely package from Donyale - Moggy and Me, including this lovely fiber to spin.
It was not easy to spin, but I did it. It's a blend of BFL-Viscose-Bamboo. It turned out to be airy and still has a wonderful drape.
I've weight the finished yarn before it took a bath, it was 93g, 2-ply, ~ 334yds.
Yarn like this was screaming to be something for a delicate neck.
I've got some yarn I'd like to design something with, it's very special, so I grabbed this yarn, to come up with something. I ripped out several times, and finally had to stop using this handspun for trial and error, because it was looking a little worn out. (still don't have a clue what to do with the other yarn)
I LOVE slip stitch patterns. I know, it's hardly visible here, especially the main part, but it was slightly less boring to knit, compared to stockinette stitch.
Sometimes I just want to sit down and knit, without having to look at a pattern. I made this little triangular scarf right after I finished Multnomah (pictures soon). So I wanted to make the ends longer, and increased every row. I changed to a different slip stitch pattern in the lower part of the little thing, a little more obvious. It was not easy to find a stitch pattern other than garter stitch which would work with this yarn.
Did you notice the edge? I was just knitting along, getting worried that I would run out of yarn, thinking up something (I think I've already forgotten how I did it, should have made notes).
It was a total surprise to me, how the edge worked out, which only revealing it's loveliness after blocking. I had about a foot of yarn left over.
My "extensive" notes, give me one more clue - I used 3.25mm needles. Sometimes I shake my head about myself. I haven't even measured it after blocking, but it's just the right size to wind around ones neck.
Thanks, Dony for the lovely fiber!
