A Handspun Scarf

It seems like I’ve been blogging once every three days.  Yay!  At least it’s somewhat steady, right?

About a year ago I started to become fascinated with spinning.  I made some of my own spindles and bought a pound of BFL and two ounces of Corriedale.  Some of that BFL became:

And then:

This is the first thing I have ever made using handspun, let alone my handspun.  Yes, it is quite thin in some areas, but I still love it!  I took the stitch pattern from a sock, Karate (Ravelry link).

I actually made a boo-boo in one of the cable-crossings and I only found out when I was completely done and blocking, but it’s not too noticeable.  I love it!  I didn’t think I would have enough yarn, and before I blocked it, it was a pitiful yard or so, but after blocking, it stretched out to 50″.

Yarn: My handspun (less than 200 yards of 12WPI yarn)
Needles: Size 5

I spun the yarn on a YorkieSlave spindle.  I love her beautiful designs on her spindles and they spin wonderfully, too!

    I’ve never handspun but hope to one day. Also would like to do my own dying. Your project makes me yearn even more to give it a try. I think this turned out quite well.
