I crocheted this bag for Jody with yarn I spun from a Loop Batt she purchase for me in spring of 2008. The yarn has shredded US currency in it, and I added real pennies as the zipper pull for added fun.


Handwoven Scarf

Handwoven Scarf

Warp - about DK weight natural colored merino fiber.
Weft - heavy worsted weight yarn spun from a Loop Batt I purchased at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival in 2008, plyed with the same merino as the warp.

I wove this in a plain tabby pattern, beating it closer in some places than others. I love the uneven way the weaving came out, and the beautiful sparkle from the loop batt.

I knit this with the Morning Surf Scarf Pattern. I modified it by casting on 26 stitches on size 8 needles. I did 20.5 repeats of the stitch pattern.
Knit from my own handspun.
The fiber was originally a Loop Batt from Steph's SSB of the month club. The theme was earth.

I absolutely loved this fiber - loved it more as yarn, and love it even more as a scarf. I saved a tiny bit back to make a couple of stripes in a matching hat.
