Loving wearing this scarf. Yes, it is more a scarf than a shawl the way the yarn springs up.
Pattern: Sakaki by Romi
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in colourway Two Butterflies went out at Noon ( I wonder if they ever came home)
Fit: Cosily snug around the neck in a spiral or draped around the neck to add contrast to whatever black I happen to be wearing.
Modifications: I didn’t knit the lace panel or add beads, though I did add 4 repeats in the centre panel, thinking I had enough yarn to do so. Three repeats may have been optimal as I then had to cut short the finish, though I don’t think it’s noticeable.
What next? Well, there are all the patterns from Romi’s 7 Small Shawls ebook: The Pleiades, much of her back catalogue I want to knit (Brandywine for instance) and a recently published Kleio, 1st of the second ebook: The Muses. So it’s a fair assumption it will be another Romi, but which one? Any suggestions? I might even throw in a skein of yarn for anyone that can pick what I think I might knit next and from these yarns I have set aside:
- Madtosh Sock – Caribbean Blue
- Spud & Chloe Fine – Dragonfly (purple)
- Knitabulous – Kelly Green
- Fibrewebs – Port
- Wollmeise 100% Merino – Aquarius
- Wollmeise 100% Merino – Ballerina (purple)
- Wollmeise 100% Merino – Herzblut (red)
Spoilt for choice that’s for sure. It might have something to do with recent yarn purchases. Well the yarn stash was beginning to thin out really…
