Finally....

Just completed this last night: Handspun Swiss Cheese in Watercolour Dream.








The fibre timed out of the 'shop' in the 'old' days....and as it was only 100g, I plied it with a silk thread to make it go a bit further. I had about 260metres at 22WPI, 125g.

Well almost finished, I haven't sewn in the ends or blocked it yet, but I couldn't wait to show it off!

Whoa, it's beautiful! The color changes in the yarn, the structure of the scarf, everything. Gorgeous!

Tis pretty. I like the way the texture compliments the form and colour changes.

It's beautiful - well done you for sticking with it. I lasted about 8 rows on this pattern before going totally ga ga and giving up! I couldn't keep track of how many stitches I'd cast back on or cast off - did my head in! Maybe one day when I'm feeling brave I'll give it another go!

Oh it's beautiful Jo, like oil on water (in a muted sort of way!) and wholly holy. Now are you going to spray yourself silver and wear this with your Levis?
