It is made out of my own handspun yarn.  This is my first knitted FO from my handspun and I cannot wait until the weather gets cool enough to wear it.  LOL!

Sea Treasure scarf---made from 100 yards of alpaca, merino, silk & glitz blend with recycled sari silk .  Roving was from Loop on Etsy, spun by me on my Lendrum ST. It is a short scarf, but here in FL I don't have much need for one for warmth, just an accent, so it will work great. 









Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

It's beautiful!  The garter stitch focusses all the attention on the beautiful yarn.  Nicely done!

Plus:  first knit from your own handspun is quite a feat!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

Proud new owner of a Baby Lock 400!  Any advice for the newbie? PM
