This yarn is almost hypnotic! I have the scarf laying out on the dining room table to dry, and find myself just stopping to look at the color changes. I already know that I'm addicted to beautiful color yarn as well as knitting, but this is too much.

My daughter said that she'd wear THIS one. I said she won't.

Maybe if I have some left over after the sweater I'll make her one, too.
I should, since I always order too much--you know, 'just in case.'

It was still quite damp this morning, so hopefully I'll get some pics this afternoon. I took some, but didn't have a chance to see what they look like on the screen. I don't think I could top Rebecca's pics of her Clapotis, though.

Me too - and I finally figured out what it is (for me, anyway) - it reminds me of the scratch pictures I did when I was a kid - where you color all over the paper, and then color over it in black, and scratch the black off with a toothpick. Not sure why, but that's what it reminds me of.

That really reeeeaaallllly is so pretty Ingrid! I love it!
I hadn't really noticed this yarn before but now that I think about it I think it is at my closest yarn shop (2 blocks away).

You know, I never thought to block a scarf. When I've made them I just start wearing them and I suppose I thought a scarf didn't need blocking. Why do you block it? Do you wash in a little soap and then just lay flat or pull it out or press it a little. or what? Curious about blocking coz I never do it. (course I haven't made a sweater except for many years ago which I know should be blocked).

Waiting to see final pic!

Actually, I didn't buy the Phoenix..Lonnie did :D when we were in Charleston for his bday, I say a basket of it on sale & grabbed all that they had behind my back...he's tricky It's the natural color & I am making him the cabled scarf that you see on the 1st page, upper left if u glance thru the pages of Scarf Style here I had to make something for him bc of the surprise, but they only had 5 balls, which will be enough for this lovely scarf
I finished my fingerless gloves & the colors are off, I tried & tried, but found it impossible for me to match colors exactly with this yarn. LOL, I have 66 yds (yep, I measured ) of this yarn left...enough to make a cute bag for my new camera Now...let me tell ya how much I LOVE this yarn, I felted left over pieces together, none was wasted...bc I knew I would find SOMETHING to knit with the left over yarn
Now...I WANT SOME MORE....in the color "Intensity" ...but I must wait until I finish many projects before ordering yarn for more
INGRID...THAT SCARF IS SCRUMPDELICIOUS

I blocked the scarf because the cables were pulling it in and making it narrower than the ends by a lot. The ends are still a bit wider, but not enough to care. I just dunked it in warm water with a tiny, tiny bit of wool wash, rolled it up in a towel, stepped on it, and laid it out on the table on some towels. It relaxed by itself--a warm bath will do that to most of us :rofling: --so I didn't bother to pin it.

I took these last night. It's still damp, so I can't make it do tricks but here it is. I'll miss working on it.

This doesn't even look real -- it looks like different colored lights are on it. Just beautiful! I love, love love the cables -- these are horseshoe-right? Good job on the photos, too.
