The Common Threads Guild (New York) has been spinning and knitting The Esker Scarf, a free Ravelry pattern by guild member Jen Maynulet. Jen, who designs as Jen May, wrote the pattern for the 4-Ounce Challenge! sponsored by Hello Yarn, Southern Cross Fibre, and Spunky Eclectic. Participants were to design a pattern using 4 ounces or less of handspun yarn. Jen named her scarf after the winding, sinuous ridges of sand and gravel deposited by receding glaciers called eskers.
Jen is a twenty-something chemistry major living in New York. She is also a spinner, knitter, painter, and sculptor. You can find Jen as cthulhulovesme on www.ravelry.com.
