Cheshire Cat Scarf

Cheshire Cat Scarf

Okay, so one of my entries in the planner was to post about my FO's, so here is one.  This is the One Row Handspun Scarf by the Yarn Harlot herself.  The handspun was a Pay-It-Forward Handmade gift from my dear friend Amy.

I was touched when it arrived and I watched it as it began to speak to me about what it wanted to transform into.  I knew it looked like a scarf but I wanted one that would showcase the handspun correctly.  I must admit that the Harlot was correct.  My one regret is that I made it larger than she suggested and when it was soaked and blocked it is wide and short.  That's okay in the long run, as I can wrap it around myself and tuck it into my coat better.

I took this with me when SF and I went to Knoxville and I was making great progress on it since SF is a capable driver and I actually was able to be the passenger for the first time without worrying about anything.  Such a treat to trust the one you are with and let yourself go and enjoy the landscape, the music and the company.  If you want an easy pattern AND you have some handspun to work with I highly recommend the pattern.  I am going to use the pattern to make a baby blanket because it will make a great blanket and looks great on either side.
