You'll remember from a previous post that I received some gorgeous yarn from Stephanie for Christmas. It's a beautiful, soft, wool in a deep red. She bought it on a trip to Ireland, so this is some pretty special yarn to me.
I selected the Fiona Button Scarf because after viewing the video, I knew I could do it. It's also more of a cowl and they give instructions for two different lengths. Plus, it's just really pretty. The instructions call for thicker yarn, but I wanted to use my Ireland yarn. And it worked out well.
First I had to wind that yarn into a ball.
And the result:
|Looks a little different from the video because I used a thinner yarn. But I like it.|
Now I'm on to stitching. It looks like I have a free afternoon so I can make some progress on my "secret cross stitch project".
