Fresh off the needles and the camera   2 comments

the whole thing, stretched and drying

Here it is, drying, spread out with the lace blocking wires.  It took a long time – at least half an hour to get the wires threaded and staying in place with the scarf fully stretched.  I need to find something thicker to pin it to, this cork is too thin.  I read one person’s comments on the wires, she uses her bed.  Not sure about that, but I had trouble getting the pins to stay put, so I do need something to change.  However – it was pretty easy to pin straight, and once it was set, it dried beautifully.

While these projects take a while to make, quite fussy, they are really beautiful when they are done.  I definitely see more in my future – and thus, in yours!

This scarf is knit using yarn I got at the Maine Fiber Frolic, it is a silk alpaca blend from Pine Star yarns, in Denmark Maine.  She dyes such lovely colors, and her prices are very reasonable.

  1. Are you kidding me?! You made this! It is so beautiful I can scarcely believe a person other than from some foreign country made it. I mean seriously it is gorgeous!
