Parrot in the Shade Scarf
This drop stitch pattern scarf is made from my first handspun and dyed yarn. The roving was purchased from Paradise Fibers in Spokane, Washington. It is a microblend, super socks superwash wool – nylon. I got 9 WPI so it certainly did not turn out as sock yarn. The pattern I used is from Spin Off, Summer 08 and called the Morning Surf Scarf by Jackie Erickson- Shweitzer. I was only able to do 16 stitches across because of the thickness of the finished yarn. It is shown in this photo while it was being blocked.
