That is a BIG airy scarf! I bet it'll be really warm and cozy!

Is it just me, or is it difficult to lift the stitches off the needle in the kidsilk? I always thought I was a loose knitter, but this darned thing is taking forever (4 hours? hah! 2 hours for the first 3 repeats!), because each stitch requires *work*!

Ah well, it'll be cold well into January, when I'll finally have this done for my mother!  Roll Eyes

It is very warm and snuggly. Smiley I had a hard time at first with the yarn, but I think I just got used to it. I have never really had problems with tension but I had to remember to knit kind of loose; particularly with the bind off. And it took way more than the time stated in the book. Which is probably just me being slow.  Wink

I made my sister one of "Kim's Hats" for Ecksmas  Smiley



I used some soy silk I spun and some Blue Sky Cotton in Grape.

Doesn't she look pleased?

Heavenly!  Soooo soft....  A little tricky at first to spin, but once you get the hang of it, easy peasy.  Knitting with it was a treat Smiley

That's a really cute hat. And I like the yarn. I don't remember that in the book. I probably skipped over it because it's on dpns.

Ooh, I really like yours daria. Very cool yarn. Here's one I made for my sister. It's just the most basic ribbed one.
The yarn I used is Malabrigo Uruguay and let me tell you, it was amazing to work with. It's so beautiful and soft and squishy! I just added a little wooden button (it's a similar green to the stripe, it's just hard to tell in this pic.) to make it a little fancier.
