Handspun Houndstooth Woven Scarf

Started with this gorgeous braid of All Spun Up Merino Tencel - such soft fiber with a beautiful sheen! After staring at it for a long time, I decided to split the fiber into blues and yellow/green and spin them separately.

Love these bobbins - such pretty shiny singles!

Decided to experiment with a houndstooth pattern even though there is not quite enough contrast for the pattern to show up well - I quickly realized that I really like the muted pattern - now you see it/now you don't :)
