It turns out having a knitting machine set up with good yarn and mindless knitting is about like having a jigsaw puzzle set up: I'm on my way to something else but ... just a few rows. I knit four scarves in six days.
This yarn is a cashmere blend that I dyed last year. The pin is another thrifted find from Thea. Did I tell you we went to see Madeleine Albright's pin collection? Check the tour dates, well worth a visit, and best done in good company.
The crochet trim was completed at home. The felted balls are from Darn Good Yarn. I used a sharp darning needle to secure the balls as I went along.
I'll be back at Searsport Shores soon with a gaggle of friends for Fiber College. Come join me for Mason Jar dyeing on Saturday, September 6th, 9 til 5 (arrive by 3:30), and Sunday, September 7th, 9 til 3 (arrive by 1:30). I'll have plenty of wool for sale, plus premixed dyes and a streamlined set of instructions. And/or you can bring your own skeins of wool. The steampots will be chugging!
