First hand-spun knit up!

Start & Finish: 25th January 2008
Yarn: My own hand-spun, "Bracken Ridge" from Ewe Give Me The Knits
Needles: 4.5 mm / 60 cm Addi Turbos
Pattern: Simple 25 stitches garter stitch, inspired/copied from Brooklyntweed's Espresso Scarf
Notes: I'm using the navajo-ply at each end of the it's a bit chunkier there. I'm using three traditional deer-horn button commonly used in traditional Tracht here in (Bavaria) Germany. And yes, they are made from real horn and not the cheap-o plastic imitation...these ones cost about EUR 4 each.

Finally serious

Just a little fill in: I've been knitting off an on since college, that's like 25 years but never really got serious with it. Knitting and purling, lot's of garter stitch.
