Have Ewe Any Wool?

More Projects...

The Brandywine Shawl is finally blocking - I'll have it for "Show and Tell" on Wednesday! Wahoo! It only used 1.2 oz. of the Jaggerspun Zephyr (50% Merino/50% Silk). (Sandy the intrepid "Guardian of the Wool" is helping "protect" the shawl as it dries.)

I also finished a scarf out of Plymouth yarns "Kaos Mystify". It only used a single skein (183 yards) to create a nice long scarf - 5 ft. plus in length. I didn't use a pattern, just a very familiar pattern stitch...Feather and Fan. In general, I liked how this yarn changed texture throughout the skein as it join different yarns. However, I was NOT happy with the actual joins - they were quite thick and stiff. Oh, well...nothing is perfect I guess!

This pattern will work for any worsted weight yarn...though if there's mohair or some fuzziness to the yarn (as there was with the "Kaos Mystify") it works up quite nicely - filling in the empty spaces in the lace without overpowering the over-all pattern .
