FO; Lacy Baktus scarf in handspun yarn


Yarn; 'Louisa' merino tencel fibre, dyed by LHogan and spun by me (2 ply)
Needles; 4 mm

I enjoyed knitting this pattern; it was just simple enough to carry around for social knitting, but the lacy pattern, combined with the subtle shifting colours of the handspun yarn make a nice, interesting and just-pretty-enough finished scarf. The only difficulty was figuring out the middle of my yarn so I could make the most of it! Mostly because I didn't weigh & mark the yarn into halves before knitting.

PS.. yes this is the yarn that appears in my blog header.
