Knit. Not woven.

I did it! I finally got through a knitting project! The first since I finished DH's anniversary sweater (2 months late). Feather and fan lace scarf, triple wide and super long; striped in my favorite shades of Malabrigo merino worsted.

Wove in about a billion ends. Phew!

In other news, I recently became the proud owner of a fab, old Ashford spinning wheel! Hope to learn how to use it soon.

Haven't tried it out yet. I am waiting on a couple of books from Amazon to figure out how to use it first. And then, of course, I have to get my hands on some roving. Your Here n' There came today!!! I can't wait to make something with it. I will post feedback once I have a photo to post too.
