This onset of beautiful weather has been a wonderful change for my mood, but it’s also making it feel harder to spend so much time indoors. I find I keep putting down my WIPs with beautifully intricate cables or lace that requires constant attention, in favour of projects that let me work on autopilot and give my mind a much needed break.
I know I’m not alone in this, so for this month I wanted to strike a balance with the pattern: an easy, meditative knit that still looks interesting and fun. This scarf creates a beautiful effect when wrapped around your neck.
I’m so pleased with how the pattern worked out, but what really makes this project special is the yarn! This gorgeous tonal was dyed by the creative geniuses at Ancient Arts, on a beautiful blend of superwash merino and nettle. Not only is nettle one of the most sustainable fibres, but it is also incredibly durable with a lovely sheen.
And round out the box, we have an adorable notions pouch hand made by a local artist!
** note, the Just the Yarn option comes with the skein of yarn , without the pattern or extra, vacuum sealed and sent letter mail.
