It’s finished and I’m wearing it today and probably every day this week because I love it so much. The yarn hand dyed by Skein is merino/cashmere 4ply in Ao colourway, it is so very soft and squishy and the colours are absolutely gorgeous. It did grow a little after soaking for 5 minutes but I put it in the tumble drier when still a bit damp and it shrunk back to nearly it’s original size. I find that merino does tend to grow a little but 15 minutes in a tumble dryer on a low to medium heat usually sorts that right out. The pattern is “Favorite scarf ever” (oh but it kills me to not be able to put a u in favourite but if you put the u in you won’t find it) by Lisa Bruce. I think it’s a perfect match for pretty sock yarn that is too pretty to end up on your feet and I used my whole skein up to make a long 208cm scarf. The pattern is so easy I would say perfect for someone who wants to try lace for the first time.
So now I’m off to work wearing my lovely new scarf… and other clothes of course.
