Pansies Hand Knit Scarf

In my last post I showed you a yarn I was knitting up into a skinny scarf. The scarf is now finished and I steam blocked it this morning and took some photos. I think I may have to take outdoor photos when it warms up a bit because these photos are a bit grainy and blurry but it will give you a good idea of how the scarf turned out. I still have to measure to get the length of it but I'm certain it is at least 5 to 6 feet long and it is about 2.75 to 3 inches in width.
Isn't this a perfect way to celebrate Spring?!

That is absolutely lovely. It is the perfect Spring accessory.

I would be thrilled to have you participate in my Spring celebration if you are able. I will be starting it the first week of April and it will run for several weeks. Promoting your work would be so easy for me!

Sandy said...

Very pretty, but doesn't steaming the yarn ruin it? I always thought that was hard on yarn?

NICO: Thank you! The yarn made it SO easy!
Duni: Thank you!
Sandy: That may ruin acrylic yarns but I don't work with acrylic fibers, these are alpaca, silk, merino and bamboo, which are fine with steaming. In fact, to set the twist on my handspun yarns I always steam them. To set the twist on cotton yarns you must boil them. So, the steam is a necessary part of the art and craft of working with natural fibers.
