I’d been wanting to knit this scarf in FSM since the pattern was first released in Knitty. I waited for the right skein for almost 18 months. I cast on within a week of getting it. The color is a lovely slate grey-blue with a tinge of green.
I can’t say enough about how much I love this. The silk/merino yarn, the amazing dye job, the lace pattern, the way it knit up. I think I will live in this winter.
This was my go-to knitting for a small, easily transportable, easy-to-knit project.

Mods: started with one row of the WS to set a base from which to begin all the yarnovers. Used the sewn stitch bind-off per Veronik Avery’s recommendation.
