knitted: the opposite of grim (Handspun Lacy Baktus)



sneak peek: Lacy Baktus, originally uploaded by earthchick.

I could think of about a million uses for this yarn, my handspun Hello Yarn October Fiber, “Grim”
for Rav: Hello Yarn Fiber Club
Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon, 222 yds. sportweight

I loved this fiber so much and was really thrilled with how it turned out. It would have made lovely socks, or an adorable baby garment. But I hopped on the Lacy Baktus train, and I don’t regret it.

52.3 - The Opposite of Grim

I thought this pattern really showed off the gorgeous color changes of the yarn.

It was a great, quick knit (done in a weekend). Fun to make, fun to wear.

The fiber was called “Grim,” but this scarf feels like the opposite of that.

I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it, and I’m planning more in the future, for gifts. It is a *great* use of handspun.

pattern: Lacy Baktus
yarn: my handspun Hello Yarn Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon, 222 yds. sportweight
needles: size 8

notes: It was a good thing I got a little scale for Christmas, because it’s pretty handy for this pattern – you knit till your half done with your fiber, and then you start the midway decreases.
verdict: It makes me happy!
