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….
