Blue/citrus scarf

A month since my last blog and there’s not much to report.  Stash-busting has sat alongside stash acquisitions, unfortunately. The Stitch and Craft Fair here in Perth was a great and unresisted temptation as Prudence Mapstone came over with a gorgeous collection of yarns.

However, before the month of May ends I thought I should just post some images of another scarf.  It’s not one I’ll wear as it’s not my colours but it did use a bit of the wonderful collection of silks in my drawers…..

Again I used the scarf as an exercise in expanding my knowledge of different knit stitches.  Although the thickness of the yarns varied I used the same needles throughout and just varied the tension.

To give weight to the ends I used thicker yarns to crochet a fringe.  I hate it when my scarf flies over my shoulder in a wind.

The whole scarf…..

I have been dyeing yarns with plant dyes for an upcoming  fibre festival in Toodyay.  They are considerably less colourful but have a subtle charm of their own so I will post something about them next….

    The vibrant colour combination in this scarf seems to pulse with energy Margaret – I love it. And all silks – it must feel wonderful. You may have been quiet but you have certainly been busy! 🙂
