I fell in love with this yarn. It was a lone skein of hand-spun hand-dyed made using soy silk, tencel, merino wool, baby camel and a sparkle thread, in creams, browns and pinks. There was only one, it is unique. So I bought it. But what to do with a single skein - just over 125m of lovely bulky yarn? It had to be scarf, something light and airy but also simple, to show off the yarn. And long enough to wrap round the neck several times to keep you warm. And it had to be quick, I was impatient as I wanted to use the yarn quickly! And I wanted to use every little bit of the yarn, which I did. I think the end result shows the yarn off well, but it is so difficult to show the sparkles in photographs. The finished size is 180cm by 22cm, when blocked rigorously. The scarf can be made to any yarn weight but I recommend at least a bulky yarn (Rowan Cocoon is a favourite of mine and would work well with this). It can also be made to any size. Written in English and US crochet terms.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
