I finally decided that this incorrigible rash is going to stay with me forever, so I decided that it was time to start doing the things I love again. I had tons of singles spun up on my Hansen E-Spinner so I decided to ply them and make use of them. This is Corriedale mix and lawzee me!… there was a lot on that bobbin. Almost 8 oz.! There was so much that even using my Louet wheel (which has the largest bobbin of any of my wheels) there was so much it would not hold it all.
Using kool aid, I dyed it in two batches.. one blue and one yellow. This is the scarf knitted from it. I just LOVE the one row scarf pattern that the Yarn Harlot designed. I use it a lot because it’s the same on both sides and is stretchy and warm and wonderful.. :) Plus.. it’s easy to remember. The pattern is HERE.
This is where the rest of the blue and part of the yellow went..lol.. (Sounds like the old Pepsodent commercial.. No, if you are under 50 you will not get the giggle.. :) ) Anyway.. this is the hat for son Phil this year. Now that I have 3 sons living way up north I will have to start making more hats.. :)
I love fair isle knitting. I’m not that good at it, but I sure do love it. :) I seldom use a pattern since I always get lost trying to use a graphed pattern.. so I just make it up as I go along.
Have a great day today. Give hugs to everyone you care about and maybe to a few you don’t.. :)
