Silk Misty Garden


Hiya, the postman finally delivered my extra skeins of Fyberspates Silk Boucle from Get Knitted so I managed to complete this scarf for my mother-in-law. I have thoroughly enjoyed knitting this, my first project from the book, and I think my m-i-l will appreciate the kind of traditional look of this scarf. I decided I definitely wanted to give her something hand made for her birthday when she presented us with a cross stitch scene of cottages and trees for Christmas. It must have taken her ages to make so I wanted to start repaying the compliment.
So, this was my first project from Scarf Style, but it won't be my last. The great thing about this knitalong is seeing all your work, and prompting me to look again at styles I had passed over in the book. Maybe Rosebud next, or Midwest Moonlight, or, we'll see!

    Your scarf turned out so beautifully. I'm inspired to try this pattern myself. Congratulations on a job well done.
