A Gift

Brace yourselves for I am about to show you some finished knitting for the second day in a row. Don’t worry, though, I’m sure it won’t become a habit. Nevertheless, here we have a finished Lace Ribbon Scarf.

Apparently every picture I take these days is modeled on the sled by my back door. Claudia says it’s festive and that works for me.

Want to see a little bit closer? Please note the lovely stripes and crispness of the lace pattern. What yarn is it, you ask? Well, the fiber is Gale’s Art BFL that I bought at Maryland Sheep & Wool this past May. Which would mean that this yarn is my handspun. Let me clarify – it’s my handspun singles.

I bet that makes you want to see even closer. Right?

I have given the scarf to my dear friend Blogless Sharon for her birthday. I figure that only another spinner can really appreciate a gift knit from handspun singles and I still feel bad about going to Maryland without her. The grin on her face when I gave it to her last night makes me think that she has forgiven me.

  1. I’m sitting here enjoying my morning coffee and trying to brace myself for the commute to work on this frigid cold morning. I logged on to blogger where I have the blogs I watch come up and I noticed you had blogged and then I realized that you blogged just minutes before I logged on. Wow another person up at this hour!!! 5:30 a.m here.

    The lace ribbon scarf is beautiful. I knit one out of bamboo backin the summer. It was my first lace! I’m sure your friend was thrilled to have it.

  2. Wonderful! I love it in your singles.

    I have a Lace Ribbon scarf in progress, from some yummy autumn-colored merino/bamboo that another spinner handspun and gifted me. I need to finish it, as I can see how beautiful it will be from yours.

    And SNOW!!!!! How cute! Thank you for that – we don’t get snow down here, and I miss it during the holidays.

  3. It’s beautiful, Carole. Happy birthday to Sharon!

    (and I love the snow. this cold rain thing we have going on doesn’t feel very seasonal.)

  4. That scarf is beautiful. I’ve been thinking of doing that pattern in a skein of Schaefer Anne yarn that’s been in my stash forever.

    I like the snow on your blog – the kind I don’t have to shovel. Now, you just have to find a way to let it accumulate on the bottom of your blog wallpaper .

  5. Your blog snows!!! That is sooo cool!
    The photos of the lace ribbon aren’t showing up on my computer for some reason. I’ll go check it out on Ravelry.
    Have a great day. 🙂

  6. What a beautiful waya to use singes. I have only knit with plyed but will surley try singles now.! Lucky Sharon. Dinah

  7. Since I don’t speak that exclusive spinning lingo I have no idea what a ‘single’ is. But, the simple fact that you created WOOL that you can knit with and gift to another has me thinking that Sharon has a special friend indeed. I’ve had this pattern in my mental queue for a while now so it was fun to see it knit up with your lovely yarn!

  8. carole you are the bomb, I love my scarf. you are always so thoughtful and the best friend ever.

  9. What a fabulous birthday present! The snow is ‘way cool, too. I had java disabled, but enabled it just to get the effect. 😉

  10. It’s totally snowing on your blog! I am hoping we get the Wintery Mix and the Light Snow Bands the weather guy says we might. For some reason, I am not getting your pictures in the posts (but I subscribe to your flickr so I can say that is is lovely).

  11. WOW! What a beautiful gift.. Lucky Sharon! I’ve not knit with my handspun singles (yet). Don’t you just I love Gale’s Art BFL?!?! The colors are great!

  12. Yay for handspun! Love the scarf, love the snow. No shovelling a blog right? Highs in the 70s forecasted for San Diego’s xmas week. Mele Kalikimaka & Feliz Navidad!

  13. that looks beautiful! it’s even more impressive to know you spun the yarn. maybe it’s just me, but when i finish something (especially the first glove, or sock or whatever, that i’ve ever made) i’m always slightly in awe that it looks like a “real” glove. is it the same for spinning, does it feel ever so cool that it looks just like real yarn? sometimes i think i knit just for that moment of completion and the wonder of creation.
