Two weeks in a row with an Unraveled Post? Could this become a series? I'm…
Thursdays Are For Knitting, Too
The socks I showed you yesterday are indeed finished but you’re going to have to wait until I get back from Mexico to see the glamour shots. And that’s because I have another finished hand knit to show you! Knitting on a knitting blog! Twice in one week! We haven’t seen that here at Carole Knits since the early days.
What’s a knitter to do when she gives away a lovely handspun handknit scarf? Why, make another one for herself, of course.
And so I did.
I have no idea what the handspun is but it’s very soft and the colors are bright and pretty.
It’s a chunkier yarn and it’s quite different from Margene’s but that’s just fine with me because the pattern is just as awesome.
I wouldn’t even be surprised if I knit another one of these scarves as they are kind of addicting.
Like potato chips except that I don’t eat potato chips anymore.
Good thing I still have my knitting.

A much more satisfying addiction than the potato chip! Just sayin. So lovely, Carole — such a fun pop of color.
Happy, tropical color which will be perfect for a photo shoot in Mexico!! I’m so glad you made a handspun shawl for yourself and the color will be fun to wear.
Beautiful shawlette Carole! And your post yesterday inspired me to finish up one sock and get #2 going – thank-you!
That is some gorgeous hand spun. I love the colors. I may have to check out that pattern. I love little scarves like that.
My gosh those colors are awesome! That scarf will look amazing with your coloring 🙂
I love it! The color is so happy and the pattern looks great. I think that is definitely one for the queue.
I wonder if anyone has ever tried making yarn out of potato fiber??? They seem to make yarn out of all kinds of surprising substances these days.
Carole, have a wonderful vacation! That wrap is beautiful.
You were right–I DO love this!
I love that pattern. It is in my favorites on ravelry. It’s a great color for you.. have fun in Mexico wearing it
Carole! What a wonderfully vibrant shawl. Just what is needed in this spring-ish time of the year. I am so glad you made one for yourself!!
Have a wonderful trip! No potato chips, only tortillas and fresh fruit margaritas! I usually don’t like the variegated yarn for patterns like that one but it t works beautifully.
And too bad you can’t wear that gorgeous thing in Mexico. (Fear not, by the time you come back, we will have cold weather again, I’m sure.)
I am totally going to rip off your idea and knit one of these scarves out of handspun! I really love natural colored fleeces, and I think this design is simple yet elegant and would look really nice in a plain-Jane natural colored yarn. I have a pile of handspun skeins, and it’s hard to find good patterns to knit them into. I bought a little Cricket loom, and have been having fun weaving scarves with handspun. I am surprised at how far a four ounce skein will go.
Pretty! I thought it looked familiar – Blogless Marsha is knitting one in green. I think the name is funny since cedars don’t have leaves.
