more! actual knitting content

I know! Two knitting posts in one week! It's like I decided I needed to finally finish a bunch of stuff so that I could start some new stuff!

I had no idea what to do with Clara's first batch of the bale. As heretical as it is to say this: In general, I'm not a big fan of cowls, which is what a bunch of folks were making. I wanted something simple and cable-y that would be good to wrap around my shoulders on a chilly day when I am sitting and working. Ergo, this:

It's more like a small rectangular shawl than a scarf and will be perfect.

Here's what it looks like on a smaller person:

What the pictures don't convey is how soft and squishy it is. Oh, bale. You are pretty nifty.

i got to try knitting with that yarn and did NOT like it. frankly, i thought the yarn was ugly/messy. but your wrap seems to have come out well. what did you think of the yarn?

In the hank, it's not a neat yarn. Even knitted, it still looks shaggy. But it blocks out into a squishable shawl that is rather plush. It still is messy, yes, but is a textural feast.
