This is a closeup of the second scarf I've knit. The pattern is One Row Handspun Scarf by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. The pattern creates a pleasing effect with the colour changes. The yarn is my seventy-eighth and seventy-ninth skeins, just under 4 ounces of handspun BFL in the colourway cocktail from Gale's Art.
The scarf is 5 by 37 inches long, just long enough to tie in a half hitch. There is no more yarn and no more of that colour fibre on hand to make a longer scarf, so that's how long the scarf will stay.
One more handspun gift for a family member, off the list. One more piece from the stash, used. A new-to-me pattern, tried. Very pleasant to be able to meet multiple goals in one project. Also good to have spun and knit this scarf in a week, considering the previous one took me over a year.
