Meet the Muppets band.

(what to do with a handspun yarn?  )
somehow stumble upon yarn harlot's one row handspun scarf pattern.  What about yardage?  with only 85 yds, how am i going to make it stretch?  stripe it of course!
Hm, I have some alpaca left overs, let's go with that?

Hm... Maybe not!  Oh! I spied a solid white left over ball in my stash, what about that??

BINGO! looking good muppets!


and Tada!  One month later from original cast on date, I'm done!!

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.

Playing with colour is soooo great!
The difference is incredible between your two swatches - the combination you went with totally works with your handspun.

I have to say though - I'm a bit jealous of your handspun - I need to get practising...!!

Thanks for the inspiration!
