No I haven't

Kerry's picture

No I haven't knitted these two scarf in the last couple of days, they have been mouldering in a cupboard until I blocked them.

Both Ishbel scarf by Ysolda Teague via Ravelry. The golden one is dyed by a local woman, Vintage Grrl, sadly she doesn't have the time to dye at present. It's a merino 80/nylon 20 sockyarn fingering weight. 101cm x 41cm
The lilac one is bamboo Naturally Atlante fingering/sport weight bought from a LYS now closed. 115cm x47cm. I used 4mm circs for both (not at the same time :)

Extremely nice. I have to

Extremely nice. I have to agree with QueerJoe that the lacy neckwrap is quite a nice trend. I should pioneer it for my area. Providing I ever get the time to knit to-do knitting list never gets shorter. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Don't do Ravelry...I spend

Don't do Ravelry...I spend so much time here that I'm afraid to. I'd never get any knitting done. Thanks, though, for the inspiration; I have some really grand alpaca that just begs to be used for this type of scarf. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Kerry these are magnificent! Like Joe, I'm all over this new look.

Very nice...I'm loving this new lacy neck wrap for guys thing that seems to be all the rage.

I also love Vintage Grrl's yarn need to pressure her to get back to dying...that's just rich and beautiful.

Thanks Joe, I really like

Thanks Joe, I really like that look too.
Unfortunately Vintage Grrl has discovered spinning so she says she doesn't have time for both. I should get her to look at your site to see that spinning needn't exclude other activities.
