New lace scarf.. out of this amazing Italian mohair yarn *Photos added


It's actually finished and blocked now and of course looks much better now that it is blocked. My camera battery is dead right now and I'll post another photo of the finished product later.


Here's the yarn.. it's a nicer color than this- the photo was taken at night and the light wasn't very good.

Yarn: Italian mohair Filatura Di crosa
I used one 40 gram skein and a small amout of another skein.
The lace stitch is from one of the Barbara Walker's stitch pattern books.

I'm mailing it as a gift for a friend's mother tomorrow.

Thank you. I do think that another lace stitch pattern could be made w/ only 1 skein? The yarn went really far.. even at only 40 grams per skein. My color of the yarn is: 273

This particular pattern had a cast on of 32 stitches.. I used a size 5mm size of needles.

Thanks Sue!

I recognized this yarn brand from when I used to live in Italy. So, I knew it was a great buy when I saw it and asked the price. It is sooooo soft.

This yarn is so pretty, that I absolutely would rather just let it sit in a pretty bowl and just be decoration. I have this yarn in 4 or 5 different colors. Every time we went back, we'd buy some more of the yarn.

By the way, if you haven't checked out my blog in the past few days.. there are some funny things on it.

Thanks for directing us to your blog! I have been watching the video on Vincent van Gogh, and it makes me cry. I've always loved him and had no idea that song was written about him. What a wonderful experience to see all his paintings!
