With the heat of summer, it's probably not the most ideal time of year to be gifting warm woollens, but a due date for gifting always seems to get me into action.
The scarf was knitted using a skein of handspun/hand dyed alpaca yarn that was started way back here. I was interested to see how the colours of the yarn would look once it was knitted and found it beyond exciting to see the different shades appearing on the needles, row after row!
I still have such a long way to go when it comes to knitting lace, I can never seem to end up with the correct amount of stitches at the end of each pattern row..ugh.
However, seeing those colours knitted up into something useful makes my heart sing and the finished scarf is smooshy soft which I was so relieved about especially after a recent not so smooshy soft handspun project was cast off (and inevitably unraveled!).
Please don't ask me the name of the pattern..it was from a borrowed magazine and I can't for the life of me remember which one, let alone which edition! A good lesson..take more notes along the way next time. ;)
Linking up with the lovely Linda today.
