just off the pins

just off the pins, originally uploaded by ebbandflo_pomomama.

I've not been doing that much jewelry work recently (though I am setting up another batch of ACS leaves - see my portable crafting blog for details) but have been getting heavily into the knitting/crochet world. A new yarn shop, Black Sheep Yarns has opened locally and it is a goldmine of the most incredible yarns, including some from one of my favourite handspinners/dyers, Yummy Yarn.

Anyway, Just finished this last night (and oh boy did I stay up late just cos I was getting to the end of the ball)
drop stitch scarf in Noro Silk Garden Lite (silk/kid mohair/lamb's wool) on 6mm needles.

It was a dream to knit up, the pattern is gorgeous and I love the texture formed by the thick/thin ply of the yarn with the drop stitch 'waves'. I am also totally in love with the colours (colour no. 2027 if anyone is interested).

I'm going to be pairing this with one of my
flotsam or wire crochet brooches.
