I started a scarf yesterday, in a lattice crochet pattern.



The yarn is the laceweight I spun from the roving from Liz, and the pattern is one I made up as I went along.



Surprisingly, I think this is the first time I have crocheted with my own handspun. I had to stop and think about that, but I think it's true. I have only ever knitted and woven with handspun. I'm liking the way this is working up, and I plan to crochet until I get to the end of the ball. Based on what I have so far, that should give a scarf that is approximately 8" x 70".

I'm not one who crochets, but that is a pattern that could entice me to become one! I like the way the colors are working into it too. Wonder what it would look like done on the diagonal?

I love the scarf. So what's a good thing to weave with your bits of handspun goodness?
