On November 5 I started winding bobbins at R Rabbit Fiber Studio. I used "Niddy Noddy" handspun Merino wool yarn by Tammy Colmon that I purchased in South Australia in July 2014 when we were on the OIDFA outback tour. I found it in a little shop when we were visiting a station. The other skein is "the uncommon thread" BFL Light DK 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool.  

Try making one with your favorite yarns.

On November 9 I started making lace. The grid is 1/4" between dots. I used alternate dots so I was working on a 1/2" grid (measured horizontally).  The entire scarf is Torchon ground, half stitch, pin, half stitch.  The yarns travel diagonally forming the diamond shapes.  This is a good way for a beginner to practice Torchon ground.  

Saturday afternoon Doris Southard Lace Guild members made lace at the Coralville library. I finished the lace that weekend.  I made the fringe when we were stitching at Meth-Wick on Monday. The scarf brightens a rainy misty day.

Wow! this looks fantastic - and will be lovely and warm, too.

Very well done. Gorgeous colours!

Very pretty.

I have been thinking about using my hand spun yarn for a scarf, never realizing that a simple stitch would look that stunning.  Beautiful work!

Very pretty. You did a good job of setting up to make those nice diagonal colored lines crossing as they do. Well done!  Would the yarn weight be called fingering yarn or sport weight?

Please add the finished scarf photo to our PHOTO section so we can find it easily in the future.

I think the solid color yarn is sport weight.  The Niddy Noddy yarn is variable.

Beautiful!  I love your choice of colors.  It looks like you used 18 pairs, correct?  What was the finished length and width?

There are 8 pairs of the Niddy Noddy wool and 14 pairs for the solid color.   

Off the pins and relaxed it is about 4.5" x 52" with 3 " of fringe on each end.  On the pins it was 5" x 54" plus fringe.  

I think I started with about 7 feet on each bobbin.  

I am just so enchanted by all of this - thank you so much for sharing such a lovely project!  It feels so very doable and will make me keep my eye out for some special yarn in the future
