Spring has sprung, but I'm still knitting winter wear
So I found this AMAZING handspun yarn, called Jewels (in a different colorway than pictured) from La Lana Wools at Stitches West. It's so spendy, it's sold by the ounce! I bought 5 ounces, not enough to knit up anything with it, but to use as an embellishment. I wanted to make something similar to their Stone Soup scarf pattern, but different.
I ended up finding this lace pattern online and will knit the scarf itself with Mountain Colors bearfoot in merlot carried with Blue Sky Alpaca's Brushed Suri ...yummy! I should have knitted the bulky Jewels in with the scarf, but I'm going to add it in last.
