Yarn: A single skein (400 m) of Handmaiden Sea Silk

There will be more scarflettes like this one, good quick present size — perhaps in Yarn Addict‘s Ocean Silk. And I really want to try Blue Moon Fibre Art‘s sea silk — especially in the fantastically named colourway, Pond Scum.

  1. Just bought this pattern, and I’m off to the yarn shop after work to get yarn – making two for Christmas presents, and I’m SURE I’ll be back here to ask you some questions pretty soon! 🙂 So lovely!

    I just love this shawl!
    I intend to knit it in a wonderful linen yarn from Swedish Yllotyll.
    And then I am going to try the Galathea pattern, which is also so beautiful.
    Åsa, this is just great!

      Thank you (tack så mycket!) — det gör min själ glad att få sådant beröm. If you live in Uppsala we’ll have to meet! (I’ll be back there in August). Oh, and I do love the yarn selection at YLLoTYLL (and I often ordered yarn from them both when I lived in Boston and in the UK). åsa
