I love Kidsilk Haze !

I started this scarf at work two days ago as a project that was easy to pick up and put down without losing track of where I was. It is a two row lace pattern and very easy to remember. Best of all it takes only one ball of the gorgeous Kidsilk Haze to make a really good sized scarf - I still find it hard to believe that this stuff goes so far. This is going to make it even harder to walk past it in the yarn department of John Lewis. Just one ball wouldn't hurt......
The pattern is by Sue Morgan from Get Knitted. She gives instructions for three sizes which are the scarf, a stole or a wrap. Even the wrap takes only three balls and I think it will have to be added to my list of future projects as I really, really want one. The scarf will be great for gifts.

This scarf should be quite warm despite being the lightest, fluffiest thing ever. Oh, and the colours of the Kidsilk Haze are amazing too. I just love it. It's really hard to tear myself away and get on with the Green Gable top.

I am loving the scarf, Im going to get some kidsilk very soon, it seems to go a long way, will you use the whole yarn to make this scarf?

Yes, I will just keep knitting until I think that there is about enough to complete the frilly end. It should be about the right length for this type of scarf.
