Scarves, beads, hand spun, oh my
A beaded lace project that actually flew off my needles. Used Alpaca lace weight to make this scarf. Most projects linger as WIPs, but this one held my interest.



My friendly alpaca farmer gives me his bunny to tend to and I get to keep the pluckings. This is angora spun right off the bunny and then knitted right off the bobbin. A sport weight lace scarf. Next go around I'm blending the bunny with alpaca for less halo.



I don't crank out FO's much anymore. My work and other obligations get in the way, so I'm fairly excited by these. I got them done in record time.

These are so very pretty and your work is exemplary! I just had a vision of you sitting with the bunny, plucking him....
