WUL Stash UFO: One Row Lace Scarf

UFO-Unfinished Object for those not accustomed to knitting lingo.

I am using some of the yarn that I got from the WUL stash dive is being turned into Norwegian knitter turvid’s One Row Lace Scarf Pattern, which is free over on her blog, which hasn’t been updated in a long time.  Still, the pattern is available. Check it out here!

The yarn I’m using is definitely wool, and I love the bluish-purple-y heather color it’s got going on.  Quite pretty!

The nice thing about turvid’s lace pattern is that it pretty much can be done on with any yarn on any needles.  I like patterns like that!  I’m pretty sure the yarn I’m using now is worsted weight, while my needles are US 10 1/2 (trivia….my favorite needle size!).

The scarf seems to be coming along fine and pretty fast, due to the large needle size.  I just cast on on my 15 minute break this morning, and I knit a row or two over lunch.

I can’t wait to see what this scarf will look like when its blocked.  That lace pattern should really open up!

So, that’s the UFO I’m working on at work/portable places project.  Cheers, rock stars!

Stash Flash: North Ronaldsday Wool

My dear friend Joan was in Scotland visiting friends this year, and went to the Orkney Islands, which are right at the northern most tip of Scotland.

Scotland is well-known for its wool and sheep.  The one of the Orkneys that Joan visited, had it’s own sort of wool.  North Ronaldsday Wool.  She brought back a skein of their Aran weight yarn for me to play with.  I am quite grateful that she did!

IMG_3330It’s beautiful yarn, I must say.  Lovey and sheepy.  And I have a pattern picked out for it on Ravelry called bramble leaf.  It seems perfect.

You can order this yarn online and can learn more about, too, while you are there. 

And, if you are interested in seeing this yarn in my Ravelry stash, take a look here.
