I just want to share the joy...

I could not find any Rowan Kidsilk Haze yarn anywhere for my Airy Scarf project (Knitted Gifts book), so I bough another yarn recommended at my LYS... It's a yarn from Knit one Crochet two called Douceur et Soie (softness and silk)... What a beautiful yarn! :inlove:

It knits beautifully on bamboo (I usually like metal needles) and it feels like a dream between your fingers. So much that I am looking for more patterns for this yarn - suggestions welcome!

Funny enough, my husband (!) asked me for a robe made of that yarn... It tried to explain to him how much that would cost but he didn't seem to care. "It would be a great ghostly robe!" he said. Since I have yet to make my first sweater, I doubt he will get the robe. Maybe I should make him some underwear in the meantime LOL!!!:angelgrin:

BTW, I am ordering some Rowan Kidsilk Night (http://yarn.com/webs/0/0/0/0-1001-1294-1323/0/0/3187/) to make more airy scarves, I think they really make a beautiful and feminine gift. Since I can make 2 scarves per ball, it makes it very affordable :)

It is really easy to make, and the result is just beautiful. So lucky of you to find that yarn for so cheap! I am jealous!


Here is a link where you can see pictures of the scarf when it was in progress, I will add a "finished" one after I block it this weekend, against a dark background.
