Spring: sprung.

It finally looks like spring around here….it’s warmed up a bit and we had a weekend of sun and outdoor chores.
from Cates Park on Sunday

I finished my ‘Fizzy Foo’ scarf. Silly name, but it’s a combo of the two yarns I used, Fizzy — a handspun BFL from Funky Carolina, and Little Bunny Foo Foo, a sock yarn from Socks that Rock, mediumweight. These two colours go together so perfectly.

The scarf softened up quite a bit after a soak.

I used a 24/48 warp thread count. Warp length was 80″ from peg to back board. The finished measurements is 53″ scarf and 3 1/2″ fringe.

There was enough of the Fizzy leftover to make a small runner/placemat that I’ll give to my mom for her birthday. Pink, she told my sister and me a year or so ago, is her signature colour, so I’m happy to keep her surrounded by pink.
