Small triangular shawl from handspun yarn.

I made this from the BFL tops that I was given when I was learning to spin. I made a 2ply of roughly 18 WPI with it.

Another project that took a long time to come to fruition. I had a couple of false starts with this but it went very quickly once I made my mind up to settle to it.

A themed RAK on Ravelry’s UK RAK group gave me an opportunity to make two test drives in one pass. I wanted to test out some chunky yarn that I had from eBay and I also wanted to see what an unblocked chunky Butternut Scarf would emerge like. The theme was “red,” the recipient enjoys dark reds, the yarn that I had was a rich deep dark red – it had to be done!
