I am still plugging away at this scarf and it is going better now that I switched to the harmony needles. I have used a lifeline after every pattern repeat, but of course I haven't needed it. I probably have about 24 inches knitted and I will go till at least 48, so it will probably be summer when I finish, or maybe next holiday season, and I will have one finished gift. We will see........
Both of these skeins were navajo plyed to maintain the different colors, but now I am spinning with the goal of 3 plying to blend the colors, in hopefully sock weight.
This next skein is 210 yards of sock weight on the bottom of the next photo, and I hope I have enough yarn when I am finished to do a pair of socks totally from hand spun.
If I run short, I will find some coordinating color to do the heels and toes to stretch the hand-spun. I might have to do research to see if the Seacell/wool makes good socks. Anyone have any information about that?? I think I like the blended look better after all, so I will have to find a project for the skein on top which is thicker and more stripey.
