FO: Hawthorne Scarf
Pattern: Hawthorne from Twist Collective (rav project page)
Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter
Needle: US 9
This was the only project that was knit entirely in India. I packed the yarn in skein form, and big thanks to my super cooperative husband who helped me wind the yarn into balls on the early-morning train from Delhi to Jaipur (I wish I had a picture of this).
Clever use of short-rows make this a sort of hybrid scarf-shawl. I'm not certain that this was the best pairing of yarn to pattern, because the lace/bobble pattern seems a tad lost with this yarn. But I do love the yarn--so cozy! My only worry is that it won't get cold enough for the recipient to be able to use this thick wool scarf. :)
Ugh! My backyard is such a mess!
