Chihuly Scarf Finished At Last!

September 27, 2012



Now this is one knit I am going to miss knitting.
It's a sea of stockinette with color changes a go go,
so was perfect for the "grab it on your way out the door" knit
that we all need to have to keep itchy fingers at bay.

Almost a year in the making,
 this was my companion at
the movies
the waiting room
coffee meet-ups
any meeting
car rides
and dare I say it, church.

Knitting helps me concentrate.  It's true.  As long as there are no tricky stitches
it's truly mindless for me and does help me focus.



During the photo shoot our neighbor Toby came over to say howdy do
and to bum a Pupperoni.  It was his birthday, he is 3!
We made a fuss over him, naturally.


The name was inspired by the gorgeous ceiling in the Bellagio lobby in Las Vegas.


The yarn is GORGEOUS!  I love how Rowan is changing up their Kidsilk Haze
and offering us more choices with this beautiful yarn.
So far, to KSH, Rowan has fluffied it up with Aura, Creation and now Trio, 
they have glimmered it, striped it and in October I heard they are coming out with 
a beaded version.  I will be first in line.
It's no secret that I love KSH.


So I envision endless ways to wrap this around me this winter.
I may end up making one more in another color as I really do think I will miss it.


I have all the details on my Ravelry page.

  5. This is beautiful! I knit Belle by Lisa Richardson in this colourway, and it is magnificent. I think Rowan and Kaffe outdid themselves with the Kidsilk Stripe colours.

    I too am a KSH addict. Currently wearing my Gypsy tunic in KSH Trio (discontinued - waah! - but I stockpiled some!) with my KSH Earth Stripe Wrap, one of my favorite FO's ever.

    I just got a quick project in Kidsilk Amore Shimmer off the needles yesterday, and as with all Rowan KSH products, it was a pleasure to knit.

    Cheers from chilly Montreal!
