A couple of weeks ago, I got a box of yarns from my cousin, spun at a local mill from her own sheep. Because of some issues with how the yarn was spun, I didn’t feel comfortable putting any of it up for sale. BUT… as a fearless and experienced knitter I am confident I can work with the problems and create something fitting from this yarn. These are all 2-ply worsted wt (or maybe it’s DK…?), and each ball is about 2 ounces, more or less.
So, like the rustic wool it is, I will make a rustic shawl — basic center-top-down triangle, all in garter stitch, probably not unlike the quick-knit rustic wraps knitted by women (and men!) for everyday durability on the old homestead. 🙂
Given the color sequence of the ones I dyed, and the ones I left plain, I am pretty sure how this will look at the end.
Mostly I am looking for a quick-knit project that doesn’t require a lot of brain activity every step of the way. There will be modest extension wings for a better wrap, but markers will tell me when to do what needs doing, so still not a lot of brainpower involved. 🙂
