FO - Wisp....py scarf
This is actually the pattern for Wisp. After it was done I decided to keep it as a scarf. Love the pattern and the yarn! Links go to Ravelry.

Wisp
Ella Rae Lace Merino (fingering weight) 1 skein, US 8 needles.

What a lovely scarf. I have seen this pattern as a shawl. How many stitches did you cast on for a scarf?

I had a friend who also used sock yarn cast on 54 and I liked the way it looked. It's a very flowing, soft scarf so having more stitches gives you a little more density when it's wrapped around your neck. I love it!

The pattern has you cast on 46 with the same size needles.

Oh this is really really really great, Jan! Perfection!

I've been looking for the perfect pattern for some Rowan Kidsilk Haze that's lingering in my stash, waiting for a "marriage"!

I do love your version, with the slightly heavier yarn! The colorway added extra depth and beauty to the pattern stitch without overwhelming it, or taking over!

Great job! Thanks for the links, too!

So pretty Jan! I noticed you used Merino - were you finally able to find a wool that you can wear?
