I've been cleaning--(ditching things I don't need, throwing out things I'll never use, doing laundry (endlessly--clothes are done, but curtains, and table clothes are dusty dirty, and..) ironing, mending (making) clothes (that I don't really need, just want) and cooking--oh yeah, some knitting, too.
I've found yarn I've forgotten about...
And then there were the odd balls...One of Merino, silk and alpaca—the other, a bit of left over mohair and silk bouclé. What a perfect match they are—A hat?
So that's what happened last night.
This simple scarf made of rows of stocking knit (the solid merino/silk/alpaca) and rows of reverse stocking knit--(the mohair bouclé) a few final yards of the solid made a slide to hold the scarf in place.. and there it is! When it was done, there were fewer than 6 inches left over from the tails! Lucky me!--just enough, and not too little!
I have some bags of acrylic to give away—(already a big bag or two has been packed up, and home found for it.)
Great for drying your hands (and no wasted paper towels) and pretty too.
Wait? What have I done?
