I would like to introduce the Lotus Blossom Scarf.
I will be sending my next batch of angora out to the processor to be made into fingering weight yarn, which I will then hand-dye for this pattern.
My prototype was done in Blue Lagoon singles and I surprised myself. My singles ended up being lace weight (eekk), so when knit up in fingering weight, the scarf will be a wee bit wider. This pattern is geared more towards the intermediate lace knitter and is a fun scarf to knit up. Anne is an incredibly gifted fiber artist.......thank you Anne!!!!
Update....I just read about a little boy named Oliver. He is a disabled child in need of some very costly equipment, that will help make his life and his family's life a little easier. Following Kerrie's lead, I have decided to put this scarf up for auction here All proceeds will go directly to Emma and Oliver. I know how many generous people there are out there ...... let's help this little guy and his family.
An Experiment with Colors
Last week, I was wavering between layered color in roving or a more blended version. This hat is a combination of both rovings. The bottom lace portion of the hat was done in the more muted roving, while the
layered roving was used on the top portion. For this project, it worked surprising well, as the top of the hat almost has a sunburst effect, however, if I had been knitting a sweater, there would be large splotches of color here and there broken up by the solid blue and I don't know how appealing that would be.......so as much as I like the bolder colors in the roving, I think that the more muted roving with the addition of some pink would work better in the final knitted project.
This was a fun trial and error project :-))
