Handspun Scarf

You know that feeling, when you are a knitter, that you just gotta cast something on but you really don’t want to think about what and how? I had that feeling lately. I wanted the simplest of projects with yarn that was already wound into a ball, and I wanted to do exactly zero research on what that project would be.

I landed on a 1×1 rib scarf, alternating two colors of handspun yarn. They are both shades of green, one darker, one lighter. When I ran out of the lighter yarn, the scarf wasn’t long enough, nor was I done with the darker green. So I just kept knitting the 1×1 rib, leaving me with a darker edge. I don’t care. It’s fine. I knit, and at that time, that’s what counted.

But, it did turn out fine, and it’s another for the donation/give away bin. I don’t need it in my life and I hope that someday it brings someone else joy.

That’s it from me this week, see you next week!

  1. It’s beautiful. And your urge to simply create is, I think, universal. It’s why I read romance novels in high school- a need to ingest words with minimal thinking required. I’m trying to aim those urges now back to reading, creating, plotting rides instead of flipping mindless in front of the television. Just because my body’s not cooperating doesn’t mean I should punish my brain with flickering lights on screens. ❤️
