I did it! Mom’s scarf was completed Friday night. And I love it. The yarn is such a dream to work with. I highly recommend it.
Yarn: 1 Hank of Tess Yarns’ Cultivated Silk & Wool
Pattern: Feather and Fan. I used Jo Sharp’s pattern from Scarf Style, but really it’s just a Feather and Fan. The book did give me the inspiration (after trying out at least 10 different stitch patterns) so it certainly deserves the mention.
The garter ridges every 4 rows shows of the luster of the yarn nicely. I like the way the edges sparkle.
Silk has some weight to it, and it makes this scarf very drapey. I love it but it was one of the things that made choosing a pattern so difficult. When you wear the scarf it gets narrower and longer.
I broke my yarn diet yesterday and bought a hank of Manos. And get this – I’m not using it for the intended purpose. Oh well. Manos is gorgeous and I’ll find a good use for it. I told myself it was OK since it was for use with a stash yarn that needed the Manos as an accompaniment. But after swatching it was no go and so it goes back into the stash. Bah!
