Mr. Darcy’s Scarf
January 14th, 2009 | Link
E. got Parallels working on my Mac a couple months ago, and over my time off at Christmas I began taking advantage of instant streaming on Netflix. The selection kinda sucks, but I ended up watching a low-budget Masterpiece Theater serial of Pride and Prejudice that stretched four or five episodes while I wove. Thus, ironically, my husband who dislikes Jane Austen has become the recipient of Mr. Darcy’s Scarf.
This is more of the Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport that I bought from eBay. I used leftovers from the Luna Capelet for the warp and a fresh skein for the weft so there would be continuity throughout the scarf: you can see there’s a vertical strip of a beige-y color on the left, which shows just how varied the colors are in this dye lot.
The scarf was 60 ends with a 10 dpi reed, and measures about 5″ wide by 72″ long excluding fringe.
