Eye Candy Friday: Scarves on my mind

The Massey Wrap is not the only scarf that’s currently keeping my attention. Here’s a little lacey something that I’m in the process of designing:


Simple pattern, yarn with long stretches of color, plus short rows = mesmerizing effect. I can’t put the scarf down because I always want to see what color the next row will bring ;).

    …..i want to touch it. I am mesmerized from here. And enchanted. And in love? Yes, I’ll say it – I’m in love! I’m already plotting what yarn I’ll use. I can’t wait to drape this one on.

    Ooh I see what you’re doing there.

    That would be perfect for some yarn I bought in Sweden, handspun Gotland with long colour changes between black, grey and a deep red (dyed before it was spun, so it’s nice and subtle). It was sold by weight off the spindles and I had to have some (I also have some in various natural sheep shades)

    Because knitting time is limited and because my mother only makes charity hats, I was thinking of giving her the yarn, needles, and a pattern to make a simple diagonal garter stitch scarf (they had one on display in the shop and it was perfect for the yarn).

    Your pattern would be even more perfect… however I would have to knit it, because Mum (who taught me to knit) would freak out at short rows.

    Oh my god this is GORGEOUS. I hope you’re designing it for a pattern release we can have soon, I’m already dying to make one!

    This looks really lovely. I recently got some Noro Sekku which this looks remarkably like and this would be a perfect match! Fingers crossed for a quick release on this pattern.

    Oh wow, that looks simply stunning! Definitely looking forward to you publishing this pattern and telling us what the yarn is!

    I’m having the same problem (not being able to put it down) with Schoppel-Wolle crazy zauberball recently. It’s totally addictive.

    Ok, my first reaction: WOW. I’m not surprised to see so many others said the same thing and I can’t wait to see more.

    Just the sort of design that I love too! I’m just finishing up a large shawl right now so I’m in the market for the next pattern…hint…

    I’m a notorious lurker – I *never* comment.

    Your teasing photos have dragged me out of lurkdom.

    Very much looking forward to more details on that there bit of knitted goodness.

    And now, back into the shadows I go. ^_^

    this is GORGEOUS. I think I can start to see what you’re doing – and the yarn will make all the difference, won’t it?

    Can’t wait until this done and shown…

    I agree with queenknitsalot – took my breath away. Simply beautiful. Please publish pattern. Pretty please. Off to join Jen in the shadows…

    Simply gorgeous!! Simple yet it draws you in…elegant in the color transitions as well as the flow of the pattern. I will HAVE to have that when you publish it!!
