Scarf Soup

Sometimes the answer to "what's for dinner?" is "scarf soup". Or "hat soup", or "wrap soup", or ... you get the idea! This delicious cowl is knit from one skein of hand-dyed Kidlin, a linen/mohair blend that is surprisingly soft.
The pattern, "Myra" by Louet, falls in the lace category and while it is not a difficult pattern, it's hard to gain speed. This is most likely due to the width of it and the eyelet work. So it's best to sit back with this one and loving create every stitch, appreciating the gorgeous texture and depth of color. I finished and steam blocked it yesterday morning and when I put it around my neck for the first time, I thought: Uh oh, everyone is going to be sick to death of seeing me in this because I Love It! If neutral colors aren't your thing, we have a beautiful selection of jewel tones. Shoot, as I think about them, I just know I'm going to have to knit one in color now (despite my obligation to knit shop samples)! Probably the raspberry & orange one! Darn this blog and my roaming thoughts.
