Herringbone Scarf is complete.
In all her snakey splendor. Adoring the backside equal to the front.
But you know my recent garter scarf fascination.
And flat as a pancake. Loving the color progressions.
Hello Yarn Fiber of the Month club for August.
Mollusc. 4oz Wensleydale Wool Top.
Spun into singles.
I tried spinning from the fold but it felt too clumpy and fiddly. Came back to spinning from the end and thought it was so beautiful as singles.
Sitting lovely on the bobbin.
Waiting to set the twist.
In her final yarn incarnation.
Next evolutionary step? I'm thinking a neckerchiefy based on a traditional Faroese Shawl pattern.
I know. With this and the Garters, and Herringbone Scarf, it's a lot of neck warming. Cut me some slack. We live in Minnesota and seriously...
the leaves in the front lawn are already changing!!
Z totally dominates the road.
Note the adorable comparison to Adam of Yarn Nerd fame on his new wheels. :-)
The bummer of a backstory is that there was dedication to purchasing from our local bike shop. Went in and not only was the staff surly and decidedly unhelpful but they wanted $150!!!! for a small child's bike.
Unfortunately I was unable to accommodate them.
Thus, we went to WalMart (how I despise thee) and got this little gem for $30. Curses and joy together!!
