I just looked at that about 15 minutes ago -- I love it.

But can you imagine how much it would cost to make out of the Kidsilk? That's about $13 a skein and I counted 10 colors in that scarf.

But dreamy it is!

Yeah, if I do it I'm afraid I'll have to use something else.

the new 'issue' of knitting daily just posted the actual amount of yarn needed for each color. The actual amounts of each color are relatively small and can make the actual expense of this project less and the choices of yarn larger.

I know , it must cost a lot to make that. That's why when I see a pattern, I try to make sure I can use the yarn I have.

That's cool, but you'd still have to buy a whole skein wouldn't you? I wonder if it would work some other type of yarn..I'm not a fan of mohair anyway..

Yeah you would probably still have to buy a skein of each yarn but i don't think you would have to buy more than one of any, unless your yardage was REALLY short. You could probably buy something soft and smooshy from KP even for it.

Just GORGEOUS! Must...resist...temptation...to plan for another project!

This might be made more affordable if a couple of friends wanted to go in on the total yarn purchase and make one for themselves sharing the yarn, if there's enough on each skein for each color to do so.

That is beautiful. I haven't downloaded the pattern yet but it looks like ALOT of seaming (I'm assuming those are individual squares).
