>taking it slow

>there is

joy

and grace

in simplicity

in basics

in making

in creating something purely from the work of my hands, my heart and my head

enough of the zen – my first finished object made from my very own hand spun.
Every lump
every bump
every irregularity
it’s mine
and I made it

the Yarn Harlot’s One Row Handspun Scarf
5.5mm needles
” knit until you run out of yarn”

this took about 214 metres

started knitting on tuesday [ march 18]
finished this morning and then washed and blocked

the yarn is slightly underspun in places so it’s very soft and cushy [ but may pill like buggery but you can’t have everything]
