Working With Hand-Spun Yarn

img_0944Hand-spun art yarn is expressive, playful, one-of-a-kind… and challenging to use!  In this loopy, stretchy scarf, I combined two small skeins of mostly-merino singles — embellished with lots of curly wool locks — which I had spun on a drop spindle; and used an elongated stitch to knit a very soft scarf long enough to wrap/drape/tie.  I added some dyed remnant sari silk strips as rustic fringes.  Since I had lightly felted the yarn after spinning, this scarf may be hand-washed without losing any of the “full-bloom” character of the yarn.
