when i was younger i gravitated towards more intricate forms of knitting. entrelac, intarsia, cables, lace, fair isle, Russian joins and invisible seams.
but over the past few years i've been more content with the basics of knitting. simple, rudimentary, elementary and straightforward.
i'm not sure why. but i think it has to do with the fact that these elements, these stitches, are the bones of knitting. they're the bones of anything delicate and intricate and complex. and i think in my life i've just come to appreciate, and oftentimes have more of a love for, the bones of things. •-•-•-•-•-•-•
this scarf was knit with the remainder of the yarn i had spun and processed from a raw fleece i bought in Vermont from @hamptonfibermill. it's so immensely satisfying to be a part of the creation of a piece at every stage (short of raising and shearing the sheep myself of course. at least in this instance... #oneday)
