An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Knitting the Wool
I soaked one end of the skeins in brown dye, leaving the other end undyed, to get a 'coffee and cream' effect. I set the dye in the oven, rinsed and dried the skeins and then rolled them into balls, ready for knitting.
The pattern is Ameeta Scarf, designed by Deniss-Ayselle Firat, which I found on Ravelry. The pattern says the skill level is easy. It is, in that it consists only of knit and purl stitches. But it requires a lot of counting and concentration to get all the knits and purls in the right place! I like the way it's turning out, it's worth all the counting.
