The gorgeous Kidsilk Haze scarf is finished and is lovely. It is really long considering it took only one skein of this wonderful yarn. Definitely a pattern that I will be using again. As soon as this was cast off I had to cast on for a new One Skein project. This time it is the leg warmers and I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in a lovely burgundy. After the brief burst of hot weather this week I am wondering if this is really the thing to be making right now but at least they will be ready and waiting for Autumn.
I also cast on today for a scarf that I am planning to give as a gift next week - just hope that I can get it finished on time. It is the Indonesian Teak Scarf designed by Jane Thornley and the pattern is available free on her website, www.janethornley.com . I really love Jane's work and have purchased another couple of patterns for a shrug and a wrap. I think that this kind of knitting is something that I will get better at with practise - blending colours and textures is fun and she makes it look so easy. The scarf is growing fairly fast and I quite like the effect so far, although I think that I may need to balance out the lighter yarns with more black and dark brown. The finished scarf then gets to be embellished with beads which will be interesting.
