As I mentioned, the current issue of Spin-Off really got me in the mood to spin -- and more specifically to spin yarn to knit up into the Morning Surf scarf.
Seeing as how this is shockingly orange (it's okay -- that's my favorite color) the name just wasn't working for me, so I have christened it the "Orange Bumpy Scarf".
For those of you thinking about making this scarf -- my yarn was about 11wpi if I remember correctly and I am using a US 8 circular needle and cast on 36 stitches to start. The pattern is something like 12 rows long, but super easy to remember and the drop stitches are not only fun, they really show off the handspun yarn. It's a great pattern for even slightly irregular yarn (mine gets a little thick and thin in places).
I'm having so much fun spinning that I just purchased some luscious fiber from Spunky Eclectic and spun up a bunch of it yesterday. More info and photos soon!
