American Wool Series

Sunday, June 19, 2011


I finished my Wayfarer scarf a couple of weeks ago and finally washed and blocked the sucker out. Apparently I'm going through an orange phase and I like it. This scarf took me a little longer to knit as it was my going-to-a-bar knitting project and, let's face it, once you hit a certain point in the evening there's not a whole lot of knitting going on. Well, not any knitting that won't get ripped out the next day.

Pattern: Wayfarer by Jared Flood
Yarn: Shelter in Embers
Needle: US #8 Clover
Mods: None. Knit it just as written which left me with a very tiny amount of yarn left over. This yarn is definitely a knitter's yarn. It smells wonderfully of clean sheep and the outdoors and knits into an incredibly lofty and warm fabric. My hands like knitting with it and the color palette is right up my alley. And what's wrong with North American raised and milled wool? Not a damn thing.
