Millefiori Scarf

Just look at this rich shiny gorgeous merino/silk fiber - I hesitated a long time before spinning just to appreciate the beauty of the fiber (and I was afraid I'd screw it up!)

MIllefiori Braid

All Spun Up 50/50 Merino/Silk Blend - Millefiori colorway. Divided in half lengthwise then spun in natural color sequence and chain plied - 117 grams/220 yards worsted weight

Millefiori Handspun

and knit into a Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf

Pattern: Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf by Karen Baumer (Rav Link)
Size: 34 stitches - 5 1/2" X 51"
Yarn: 114 grams (4 ounces) of Handspun All Spun Up Merino Silk in Millefiori colorway - had only 3 grams leftover :)
Needles: US 5
Mods: None - used the alternate ending for symmetry

I knit one of these many years ago (here it is) and promptly lost it, so I finally have a replacement - What a fun knitting project - easy as can be and still so enjoyable watching the colors flow.

He took the picture while I was saying "I can't keep my eyes open with the sun in them" which is why it is double dorky :)

Seem to be in a scarf mode...starting a Sea Lettuce Scarf tomorrow for the Lucy Neatby KAL - I love her wonderful unusual patterns and great ideas/methods! 2 other neck wraps in progress too :)

If you have comments or questions or want to contact me for any reason, just email or contact me on Ravelry . Thanks :)
