Two Scarves....

...just in time to show off in the early spring sunshine.

admittedly the pale blue one (Branching Out, from Knitty) isn't done yet, but I am so close. I am hoping that the lace pattern will open up when I block it, as it isn't really visible at the moment.

The green and pink one is woven on a little weavette with my first handspuns. I like it, because I can look at it and see how I have improved. Guess the order in which I spun them :);

And to give you an idea of length, here is a pic of it drying on the sun lounger (it was the longest thing I could find.


Size: 72" X 5"- long enough to wrap around my neck a couple of times.
Materials: Handspun Corriedale in green and pink, with a little Optim Tops given to me by a really nice guy at a Spinners and Weavers open day.
Variegated pink to white cotton to do the actual weaving.

It's made up of 15 squares, and I used the cotton to weave with because when I tried weaving with the pink handpsun, it was too weak and kept breaking. I am not sure if the green could have held up, but I think it looks better when the two colour have something to tie them together.

After I have finished Branching Out, I think I might try a summer knitting project...
