FO Friday

handspun-scarf.jpg

Irish Mists, Peat Bogs, & Gorse by Carol Rasmussen Noble from the Lavish Lace.  I really love this book. The yarn is my very own hand spun merino superwash.  I handpainted the roving prior to spinning it into a lace weight, approx. 300+ yards.  I did not block this hard like I usually do for lace, I just soaked it then laid it flat.  It drapes very nicely and the approximate dimensions are 6″ x 65″.  This lace pattern was a very simple 2 row pattern and I will definitely knit this again.
 Mark your calendars for next week.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac we are going to have a total eclipse of the moon February 20-21

The entire eclipse can be seen from eastern and central North America. The Moon enters Earth’s umbral shadow on February 20 at 8:43 P.M. EST, and the eclipse becomes total at 10:01 P.M. EST. Totality ends at 10:52 P.M. EST, and the umbral phase ends at 12:09 A.M. EST on February 21. The penumbral phase (only) will occur over western North America, at the time of moonrise; it will be difficult to see changes in the Moon’s appearance.”
