My plan with spinning all of the Tibetan Mastiff over the summer was to eventually knit this scarf.
It's a simple stockinette pattern, stitched on the bias. It called for a provisional cast on which I had not done before and is made by simply making one at one end and knitting two together at the other... very simple construction with a slightly different point of view. Perfect for my place in life right now and I think just right for it's intended recipient.
I was worried that I may have spun the yarn too tightly. It feels a bit like twine, but the bloom is really nice after it's knit. It's quite soft and not too fuzzy for my taste. Which is saying something,
because I tend to dislike fuzzy yarns.
The orange cotton is the provisional cast on and will eventually go away. I probably should have chosen something other than cotton since picking up the stitches and knitting the first row was quite a challenge. But I chose it because it would not felt with the TM and the color is easy to see.
It's at 20 inches already, so it's going quite fast.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
