As promised!

And without further is my Sweetgrass scarf in progress...

Isn't she pretty!  It is made from my handspun...a mix of wool and silk.  The resulting yarn is a bit rustic looking but with a really nice strong yet soft feeling to it.  The pattern is the Seattle Bloom scarf which is found in the Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders book.  I love this book, it is where I also got the pattern for my Lettuce Slide scarf.  My handspun is thicker than sock yarn but I don't mind a wider scarf.  Not after last winter that is for sure.  In any event, I love the subtle striping of the scarf.  I'm knitting with my handspun so I can have more samples at my sale tables in the future.  Like that is a hardship.  smile...I love knitting with my handspun.  Although I'm not sure about the yardage, according to the pattern it needed 400 yards.  I had about 440 yards and I left out two repeats, one for chart A and then the corresponding repeat in chart B.  Hopefully that will be enough, since I do not have more roving.  But that is me, always living on the knitting world edge!  Stay tuned.
