It's a new season with a fresh round of fiber events right around the corner.  In an effort to keeps things interesting there will be plenty of new samples.  The latest addition . . . 

Brooklet by Cecily Glowik MacDonald.

This looped scarf is versatile.  

It can be worn as a long cowl, doubled up around the neck or folded and looped through.

Brooklet uses two colors and is worked in the round.

The inside, stockinette section is worked in one color.  The outside is worked in the second color with a lace design.  Brooklet is a good introduction to lace knitting and uses a provisional cast on and three needle bind off.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Mavis, colorways Splash and Chocolate Mousse.

This merino / silk blend makes a luxurious, cozy scarf.  Brooklet will be available as a kit with several color combinations.  Look for it at the spring shows and on the website.

The birch tree is my favorite tree.  Standing so tall and straight birch trees remind me of lonely sentinels.  Birch trees . . . my color inspiration for the week.

The beauty of black and white.
