This is a test knit for Laura knitted during April and May (can it be that long ago??) in a gorgeous greeny soft sheeny pure silk from Sunshine Yarns. It is a lovely pattern whose very clean and simple lines appealed to me from the start - and a very fast knit, not least because I knitted the scarf size. I began my scarf working the nupps written in the pattern butI very soon changed to using the suggested alternative beads because the nupps just didn't show up enough against the variations in the yarn colour. What has taken an inordinate time was getting some decent photos.
Why is this colour so hard to photograph?? It's most accurate on the second picture.
It is so lovely and has been admired by everyone who saw it on my table - so much so that as soon as the green was finished I was inspired to start a second one to be used specifically as a table centre runner. This next is wider and gold as the pattern's name suggests. It is 100% silk with a gorgeous sheen - I just hope I can take some photos that do it justice.
