Last May, the Husband and I flew up to Boston for a vacation. At the time we had no inkling that we would move here 6 months later, so we tried to make the most of the week. Like with any trip, I wanted to hook up with some knitters and have a social evening getting to know people that I'd only known previously online. Elisa was one of those knitters. She's funny, sweet and dude! she gave me handspun yarn. Definitely a kindred spirit. I wish she hadn't moved to California before I moved to Boston, because I'm sure we could have been fantastic partners in crime. I get the sense the two of us could have got into a lot of trouble if we lived in the same city.
A few weeks ago I took that gifted handspun and combined it with some Brooks Farm Tierra Blend and knit myself a striped 1x1 rib scarf. The creamy coloured Tierra Blend is loosely spun and works perfectly with the pinks and greens of the handspun. The result is a thick and gooshy scarf that looks like stockinette. It's soft and fuzzy and perfect for Spring. The absolute best part is I get to wear a scarf that's the product of two friends. One stripe for each of us. Thank you Elisa, I couldn't have made this scarf without you.
