Summer Night

A present for a 60th Birthday, the Summer Stream Scarf by Asami Kawa was a simple but beautiful project choice.

I love knitting with this yarn, it’s light and soft and smells beautiful because it’s dipped in essential oils after it’s been dyed. Machelle you are a yarn diva genius 🙂  If you want to get a some of your own it’s Chopped Tomatoes Heavenly Infusion Wool Cashmere, I used the Tropical Twilight colourway.

It grew quickly, but I had to start something else to break the monotony of the 2 row repeat.  I also didn’t graft in the middle but after one repeat of the body chart at one end.  I think it blends better and I don’t like the idea of having a seam, however well grafted it might be, in the middle of a scarf that can be quite obvious if you choose to wrap the scarf around your neck once and let the ends hang at the front.

The day before it was due to be gifted it was pinned out and drying on the living room floor – just in the nick of time! It looks really nice and because of the cashmere it’s light as a feather and deliciously warm 🙂
