Golden Florence lace scarf

One more variation for my scarf design "Florence" .

Yarn: Silk Cloud from Shibui Knits - about 1.5 skeins = 495 yards.
Size made: 78.7" x 11" (200 x 28 cm).
Needles US 6 - 4.0 mm.

I have to say - the yarn is just gorgeous! It's definitely my favourite mohair yarn. It's extremely soft, not too messy in process of knitting, not too fluffy. Just I wish Shibui would add some gentle tones. And I really miss their "blush" color.

BT - Winter 14

Beautiful as always! I absolutely love these photos, especially the ones taken in a natural environment. I can almost feel that chilly, fresh air and the comforting wool hugging me. I also like that the models are not smiling aggressively while looking directly at the camera, but that instead they are looking away like they are thinking about something or just enjoying their walk carrying peace inside. I miss trees, but now it's the busiest time of the year for me, so I can not allow myself to rest.
