Phoenix Tears Scarf

When I got Charmed Knits, I really wanted to make the Invisibility Cloak. And I still do, but I want to spin the yarn for that. So that will take me a while (a LONG while) to spin up enough very fine yarn.

So to amuse myself in the meantime I made the Phoenix Tears Scarf from Charmed Knits.

I just put the final details (the beads representing the tears) on it today. Details on the yarns can be found here.

The scarf looks great!
I'm very envious and impressed that you are going to spin your own yarn for the invisibility cloak. Too cool.

It will probably take years though! I have the fiber that a friend gave me, a nice silk/camel blend and I had started spinning it a bit earlier, but with no project in mind. Now that I have a project in mind I will probably be more diligent about spinning. The reason it will take a long time though is that I had started spinning it on a spindle rather than on a wheel and I think I would like to continue that. I get a much finer thread on spindles than on the wheels. But it does take much longer.

Oh that looks wonderful, Treesh! Well done you. Now I want to make one. Have you seen the Fawkes socks on Socktopia? They're incredible too - you might just have time!
