On The Needles
My next project is on the needles. It is the Lopi Lace Scarf by Pam Allen from the book Weekend Knitting. I'm using the handspun yarn I bought earlier this summer at Fire Ant Ranch in Elgin, Texas. Since I am just shy of having the recommended yardage of the main color, I've decided to increase the length of the contrasting edge. It will give it a slightly different look, but I don't want the scarf to be too short. Of course, I didn't take time to knit a guage swatch, so I'll just have to wait and see. So far, guage looks pretty close and that's good enough for me. I think this yarn will show off well in this scarf. I love knitting with it. It makes me wish I knew how to spin. Maybe one day.
