I came across a bag of knitted goods when I was upacking my apartment recently. Yes, this is becoming what amounts to the longest move in the history of renting.
In the bag were these five scarves. I knit them all while I was in high school. Oddly, I remember most of the yarn details for all of them except for that purple one and even then I remember some of them. I’m not certain if everyone can do that or if that’s some sort of strange fiber quirk I have.
The red moss stitch one is a handspun wool that I picked up at a commissioned crafting place in Rhode Island. I don’t remember the name of the farm but I remember that it was a really grey, dark day when I got it. I know I got it home and had no idea what to do with the yardage I bought.
The next one over is a 100% alpaca that I got the first year I went to Rhinebeck. It’s a lace pattern that I don’t remember the name of but I’m assuming came out of one of the vintage books I was using at the time.
The third is a white wool that I got at Rhinebeck the second year we went. It’s a candlelight/flame style lace. I love this wool. It’s rugged without being rough.
The fourth scarf is Lorna’s Laces superwash but I don’t think I’ve ever actually tested that. I got it at a yarn store in Conneticut one summer before I graduated.
The purple one on the end is a handpainted wool. That’s all I remember, that it’s handpainted. It’s the same lace pattern as the white wool one.
