Way back in December, I made this post about some yarn I'd spun to make a scarf. A couple of months later I showed you the work-in-progress. But, I never got round to photographing the finished item.
Here it is:
The reason I didn't take photos is because it's been so bloomin' cold that as soon as it was off the needles and had had a wash, I started wearing it.
And very cosy it is too. Because it's from my own handspun yarn (which takes me ages to do - I haven't been brave enough to try spinning on a lower whorl which makes the bobbin spin faster), I wanted to use it all up. This has resulted in the scarf being long. Long enough to wrap twice round my neck. With hindsight, I could have cast on four or eight more stitches and it would still have been long enough (this baby's longer than I am tall), but wrapping it twice round my neck works well too.
I think this is some of my best spinning to date (says she, in a self-congratulatory way). I think the colours blend nicely and the pattern's very easy and one I'd recommend - Ravelry link .
Back to knitting my greeny-blue socks now. I've got 13 rounds of ribbing and casting off to do, so I'll probably be back tomorrow to show them off.
