Casting On and A Finished Spooky Embroidery Piece!

As mentioned a few posts ago, I picked up four skeins of local Jacob at the Pinetop Star hoping that I would find just the right pattern for it.  

I didn’t realize that it didn’t have the yardage on the labels, so I had to measure each hank in length, count the strands and calculate the yardage, which is approximately 210 yards for each skein.  
I do love the fact it wasn’t a twisted skein, which has caused issues in the past with my yarn winder.

I love the squishy soft feel of this natural fiber and have decided that Mirkwood by Kalurah Hudson is a must for this beautiful yarn.  

The pattern calls for Cascade Eco-Wool, which is classified as a bulky weight yarn and even though the Jacob I purchases says it’s DK weight, it’s more of a light worsted weight.  I know that the finished piece will end up a bit smaller in size due to my choice of yarn, and yarn weight, but I’m quite confident that it will be perfect when done.

From the Designer’s Ravelry Page:   The scarf itself is nice and long for wrapping around but you can easily knit more repeats to lengthen it further. The hood is picked up and knit flat, then seamed at the top.  I incorporated a pretty “Lateral Braid” into this garment to separate the ribbing from the complex panels of cabling and lace

I will have enough to make this pattern as well as the matching Mirkwood Mitts.

I have also finished my Halloween Too Cute embroidery pattern by Hudson’s Holidays.  This was a lot of fun to embroider and the only change I made was framing my finished piece. Shirley has quite a few other patterns I might have to make for the holidays as well!

I’m also still spinning my Targhee on my Schacht Flatiron.  I’m enjoying this fiber and my wheel, but will be quite happy when it’s finished so I can ply it!  Hope you enjoy my video from this morning.

Until next time ~ be creative!
