I usually try to keep some kind of a “brainless” knitting project in the car for those times when I’m waiting for someone or stuck at a train stop.Â Since January, that project has been a cabled scarf from a book entitled “The Knitting Man(ual),” but I’ve been getting sick of it so decided to bring it in and finish it (which I did during the debate last night).
The cool thing about this scarf is that it’s entirely local – in other words, it’s made from yarn “grown” just a few miles from here by Barb and her husband of Marr Haven Wool (Barb is mhyarn on Ravelry).Â I originally purchased the yarn for the Labyrinth I knitted last fall/winter and when I had some left over went back and bought a little more so I could make a scarf out of it.Â It’s a little rough and smells slightly of lanolin (it’s very lightly processed so retains some of it’s natural oils), but I like it.
