Scarf: finished

Finally finished: Summit from Knitty, but a scarf rather than a shawl. I ran out of silk along the binding-off edge; I left it lying for a while, trying to screw up the courage to undo rows and rows of tiny slippery stitches so as to reclaim enough to finish off the binding properly. Couldn't do it. So I found embroidery cotton in a close-enough shade, and finished off with that.

It's ended up being a not-very-practical but still pretty scrap of silk, just long enough and just wide enough.

oooo nice! that's another pattern I'm itching to try!

Looks great - just big enough to tuck into the neck of a jacket.

Wow, it doesn't even look knit, it looks like woven fabric. It's lovely. I am sooooo into gray right now.

The following is an exact quote from me when the picture loaded on my screen:

"(sharp intake of breath) Ohhhhhh!"

Translation: oh wow! this is so beautiful. I am totally in awe of your skill & patience for completing this pretty scarf. Love the color!

Fantastic! And a lot of work with such thin yarn, but so worth it.

I know how you feel. I eventually undid mine because I kept forgetting where I was in the pattern. You scarf looks just the right size!
