It's crazy, I know!

Nobody even wants to think about a scarf, let alone make one. But hey, the next winter is coming for sure!

I'd like to make His & Her scarves and this would be the Her scarf (little flowers might be the give away).

I found out that it's VERY hard to take a picture of a scarf when nobody is wearing it. Not even Sam could help to get a better one. He says Hi by the way!

yarn: Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK, 85% merino 10% silk 5% cashmere, 2 1/2 balls ( ~ 368 yds) without fringes, with fringes 3 balls

4mm needles

size: 6.5" x 76" blocked without fringes

Pattern: my own Free pattern coming up soon!

I'm not buying this yarn again. I don't like yarn which is thick and thin and it breaks easily. I liked the color though. For the flowers I had some leftover yarn from the scarf I made for a friend. It's mohair blend and makes cute little flowers. Embroidery is not my forte though!

I really like the scarf. The flowers add a great touch. The yellow color in nice too. Unfortunate that that you didn't like the yarn though. Sam looks great!

Too bad about the yarn, the scarf looks so nice knitted with it. Tweedy but not overly so. Thanks for the review especially since my LYS just got it in recently.

I am amazed at the speed of which you finish projects. Amazed.

I can't believe how gorgeous this is, and it's really your own pattern?! Wow, I'm way impressed by your work, your knitting is just amazing!
Sam looks so cool with the scarf - I suppose he was quite happy though when you took it off him considering the temps these past days over there, but you're certainly right, the next winter will definitely come (unfortunately!)
Give Sam a big hug from me!

Beautimous scarf! Love the patterning on it - I'm not a big fan of thick and thin yarn either, especially not when it wants to fall apart on you! For future reference - it probably just needed more spin put into it.... But at least the scarf came out wonderfully!

Sam does not look too impressed with being made to wear it - what a good dog to do you the favour!

Monika, Sarah here from Lieblingsgarn responding to your comment. I was kind of surprised at how loved the bags were. I had a lot of comments on them. Although I had not planned to make many more of them you got with the magic word Koigu. What's your favorite color? What sort prints do you like? And wow you are a proficient knitter! I love everything on your blog!

Love this scarf! The color, the pattern - I want that pattern! I think this would look great as chunky bath mat, done with chunky cotton, 2 or 3 strands together, maybe 2 or 3 strips then sewn together.
