Lace Scarf "Florence" with Silk Cloud from Shibui


This is another version of my newly designed scarf "Florence". Here I used 30 grams, 396.0 yards (362.1m) of lace weight yarn Silk Cloud from Shibui, color Ash. The yarn has mohair and silk fibers and it's the best mohair I have ever worked with so far, it's extremely soft and mildly fuzzy, It just can not be better.

Lace Scarf "Florence"

This is my newest design. I used lace weight yarn Cima from Shibui, color Suit. The yarn has alpaca and merino fibers and it's one of my favourite yarns, it's soft and silky. The trim is actually knitted straight, but stretched this way in blocking process. I will write the pattern when I will have more time.

Cabled wool socks

I made these socks using 100% wool yarn - Palette by Knit Picks. I like this yarn, it is quite rough and itchy but it's good (see why). I used 56 gramms of this fingering yarn for both socks.

I was using square wooden needles for the first time and I liked this experience. These needles are little easier to hold and control because they are square, and they are light and will not slip out because they are made from wood. I like it.

This color is gorgeous and I'm quite satisfied with how these socks look. And also I'm excited about a nice way to show this beauty by wearing a transparent rain shoes which I'm planning to do.
