I've finished!!! Yeah - the scarf was blocked yesterday and lightly ironed this morning for its photo shoot. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
The scarf is made from alpaca from a local farm. It was spun locally too. It is slightly slubby. I hand dyed it in a lovely green while it was still in a ball so the colour is uneven and varied. I knitted it in a drop stitch pattern from the vogue knitting reference book. It was mainly knitted on metal circulars while traveling on the bus.
With this description, I think my pal will work it out as I've been dropping her hints...
It will be in the post in the next few days to fly across the ocean from Australia to the USA.
Thanks to the hostesses who have made this exchange possible.
