    Marigold 

    This yarn was spun with a specific pattern in mind.  It might be the first time that I have actually done this, and completed the project.  Fiber was by JulieSpins that I purchased from a destash.  She is now one of my favorite indie dyers (more to show soon).  This was a dream to spin, I just wish that I had a bit more of it.

    Sofia chose the pattern Marigold from the book The Sock Report.  I had to reduce the number of repeats at the beginning from 7 to 4 at each side, so it was not as long as planned.  The pattern is really off on yardage also, I kept weighing it after each repeat to maximize the yardage used.  The result is very pleasing, and a wonderful play of yellows, pinks and oranges.

      That is a gorgeous scarf! Fiber looks so different before it’s spun. I don’t know how anyone picks it out!

        Me neither, I see some spun up that looked totally ugly to me as fiber, and ends up being gorgeous yarn. I am on the early end of the learning curve. This one was easy, because the colors were fairly close together.

    Let’s try again 

    I was working away on my Marigold shawl with my handspun from JulieSpins.  The yarn was equally split, and I kept weighing to make sure that I had enough to finish.  Sadly, the bad part about handpsun is that not all sections weigh equally.  I realized that I needed to knit back and take out one of the early repeats.  The needle placed part way down indicates how much I had to rip out.  The good news is that I have reknit this and more since yesterday.  The benefit of a boring mandatory meeting.  The color is not as intense in this photo, I will get better color shots when it is finished.

    While nothing about these flowers looks real, I purchased them as they made me happy and brightened up a cold winter day.
