FO-Wisp Scarf

PATTERN: Wisp by Cheryl Niamath from Knitty Summer 2007
YARN: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Heavenly - less than a skein
NEEDLES: Addi Turbo Lace in US size 6
MEASUREMENTS: 8.5" wide by 57" long

This was a super easy knit and perfect for summer since it was so light weight. I had about 85-90% of one skein left of the Kidsilk Haze and I tell you, you get a lot of mileage out of one skein of this yarn. I would have liked the scarf to be a tad longer but I had trouble ripping the Kidsilk Haze from my previous project so I wasted a bit on that. Lesson learned - make sure you know what you want to knit with Kidsilk Haze as it's nearly impossible to frog. It's also a bit difficult to work with at first but once I switched from regular Addi's to the Lace Addi's that helped enormously and eventually I got used to the yarn. Other than that, it's a beautiful yarn.

The edges came out a bit wonky. I'm not sure that I used my new blocking wires properly. But I think it's a pretty scarf and will be nice for early Fall and Spring.

gorgeous! I think you did a lovely job of blocking. Isn't the kidsilk haze dreamy now that you're not frogging?

Ooooh, how pretty! I love the airiness. I have just two orphan skeins of KSH I didn't know what to do with and now I do. Thanks for the idea. Now I just have to get that magazine.
