Things have been so crazy around here lately (I know I keep saying this, but it’s true) that I’ve gotten very backed up on FO posts. I’ve really been quite productive and have many things to show you, but until recently I haven’t had a chance to block, get good photos or post about what I’ve made. So it’s time to start catching up.

When Liz gave me the Kitty Grrlz gift certificate that lead to this yarn purchase I knew I wanted something simple to really show it off. Inspired by Zeitgeist Yarns and her many kerchiefs, I decided to make a kerchief of my own. Or as I’ve been calling it an “angle scarf”. I picked up some simple Jo Sharp yarn to stripe in (both to show off the angle effect and to stretch the relatively limited yardage of the handspun) and I set off. It was very straightforward and laid back knitting, but the end result is an accessory that is neutral enough to wear often, but still gives a splash of color.
