i started last night with cherry tree hill cotton in martha's vineyard...i adore the colors, and i memorized the pattern after only one row.  this is my new favorite alternative to stockinette or 1x1 scarves!  i love it! so pretty!  i'll post a photo later.  i've been awol on the posts and the photos since we got our new puppy (see left).  i don't have a proper desk and he loves to chew on the various computer cords when i'm set up at the kitchen table, so i have to wait until he goes in the crate for naps to get online & get photos downloaded.

That went really fast!  I finished everything except for the beads!  Thanks for sharing this pattern!

Mangosplash, that's very beautiful!  What yarn did you use?  Is it scarflet length?  I can't wait to see it with beads.  Yahoo!

I'm half way finished with my angora stole.  It's 9 1/2" wide and should be 68" long when done.  I'd like both ends to be scalloped.  Should I put the first half on a lifeline, then cast on for the other half, then graft the two together?  I've never grafted anything and I don't know how that would look.

Wow! Mangosplash--what yarn did you use? That color is fantastic!

I love your stole-version, Sewer Rat. I'm not sure how you would go about grafting the two ends together though, as I've never tried it. Maybe you just post a question about it in the Discussion & Questions forum?

Anyway, I like the way this scarf looks in angora. Too bad that angora is too fussy of a fiber for me, because I love the way it looks and feels; I just hate the trail of fuzzies it leaves in its wake.

here's my take on this beautiful scarf, as of yet without beads as I couldn't find pretty enough ones in my stash that match.

alexandra m_79, I love how the variegation followed the pattern to make waves~ that turned out spectacular!

sewer rat, great idea on the stole, it looks so soft..... and those angora bunnies! OMG! They look pretty soft, too. They must have full-time bunny-brushers to keep them looking that good.   Cheesy

I have yarn and beads for another project! It's green!

Oh, Alexandra_m79, those are my colors!  Your scarf is beautiful!  What yarn did you use?  I'm always on the lookout for variegated yarn.

Grusinskaya, the angora does shed a lot.  I'm finding it in my food, in my eyes, all over.  I've probably inhaled a skein's worth.  Can one get "angora lung"?      I'm hooked on the stuff and am making two more stoles for Christmas presents, one a rosy-pink and the other, dark wasabi green.

Horse Power, yeah, those bunnies are definitely pampered and adored.  Btw, thank you for starting the pound kitty blanket-along.  I've got to get on board.

I lvoe this scarf pattern and seeing all the beautiful scarves has made me want to start my own Grin I started one in Moda Dea Dream in white, and I'm about.. half way done.. I'm hoping to get it done soon, as I too often get bored with scarves.. hahaha Cheesy
Oh and sewer rat, the grafting might work but then again there also might be a small line where you grafted it.. it depends. You might not even be able to see the line with the angora halo Smiley

Bespectacled, I'm such a noob that I'm not even going to attempt the grafting.  I think I'll add huge pompons to the ends, instead of the beads.  Can't wait to see your white scarf.  What kind of yarn is it?
