I finished my first handspun Baktus Scarf. I can already tell that it won’t be my last. These things are like potato chips – you can’t have just one.
The wood pile is an excellent model in the absence of the human variety. The yarn and the wood act like velcro – pose and shoot, repose and reshoot.
I took way too many photos, in fact, because the light was right and the colors looked beautiful and I snapped 30 before I even blinked.
I made a vow to use more handspun and this scarf is perfect for handspun. In fact, I adore it in my handspun. It almost looks woven, I think.
I knit it exactly according to the pattern. I weighed my yarn first, knit until it was half gone, and then started decreasing. No waste, no fuss, just a great scarf!
I’m already planning my next one.
