Some time ago I acquired ten balls of wonderful Debbie Bliss Como. Apart from petting it and staring at it loving, I had very little idea as to what to make of it.

Then, one chilly morning I realised that in my whole knitting “career” I never ever made a scarf! I played with few ideas and narrowed it down to these criteria:
not too bulky
pretty pattern
must have tassels!

To design the scarf I used Roman Stripe pattern.

And with the gorgeous warm orange colour how could I name it other than Vesta, Roman goddess of warmth, family, whose symbol was fire?
