Hello, everyone - I've been gone from blogging for a few days over the long weekend (and I hope you spent yours well).
As some of you may remember, I blogged about receiving some rather fugly vintage Americana yarn. As promised, I've swatched - both for knitting and crochet - and the results are rather intriguing:
So, with that in mind, as well as a pattern picked up from my recent LYS tour in hand, I created my Fall Leaves Scarf.
The best thing? I wet-blocked this scarf, and the bath of Method soap and cool water did wonders for the Carrousel yarn. It's actually far brighter now than when I received it (if that were possible!) and it's a lot softer to the touch.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on how I used my skein of Americana - definitely leave me a comment below. And thanks Underground Crafter, for organizing this fun stash swap!
