FO: gathered scarf.

Gathered Scarf (Ravelry link)

US 7 and 4 needles

Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino, 3 skeins

I LOVE this: not a fast knit, due to all the needle changing every 5 rows, but well worth it.

This is not quite as shiny as it looks in these pictures; it is more that the yarn has a soft halo and a nice amount of depth to it. I was going to take a picture of it rolled up or in a pile, but I am not ready to take it off yet. The scarf is 7 or so feet long, and I anticipate that a bit of wear will stretch it out a bit, meaning I will be able to wrap this around my neck multiple times — an indication that this will get a lot of wear. I love feeling cozy.

We had another incredible sunrise today. I hope you aren’t getting sick of my sunrise pictures. I woke up just before my alarm, took the dog outside and began making my morning coffee. I almost dropped my mug when I glanced out my kitchen window:

I couldn’t pick just one to share. Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. I love the scarf. It really does look so comfy.

    And bring on the sunrise pics! They’re gorgeous. I can’t see them where I live; too many buildings blocking my view.

  2. I’ve added the scarf to my Ravelry queue. Keep bringing the sunrise pictures. I love them and strive to never be up that early!

  3. You’ve been so busy!

    I have been LOVING that scarf since I first saw you working on it. It’s the kind of thing that makes me happy to be a girl!
    divine.

  4. That’s gorgeous! Blue Sky Alpacas makes the most amazing yarn. I’m knitting with alpaca silk right now and I feel bad if I don’t wash my hands before I knit because I’m afraid I’m going to soil its beauty and purity.

  5. Your gathered scarf is just beautiful! I made one, too, in fingering weight yarn and it was such fun. Plus, I get a lot of compliments on it!
