Just a quick post this time, because my Dad is here visiting. More on this at a later date...
Anyway, I wanted to show off my finished "Children of Lir" scarf. Here it is before blocking, measuring in at a rumply 11" x 31".
And here it is post-blocking, after blossoming to 16" x 50".
I'm quite pleased with the way this came out. The yarn softened a bit after washing, and the finished hand is soft, drapey, and airy. This is the nicest project I've ever made with my own handspun.
To refresh your memory (and mine down the road), this is from 50% Merino / 50% tussah silk commercial roving, spun worsted as a 110 wpi singles, plied to a 57 wpi two-ply, and knitted on #2 (3.0mm) Addi Turbos. Total weight= 1.3 oz (40 g). Total length of yarn used= 416 yds (380 m)
