Icy Leaves...

...outside have become just damp in the time it's taken me to knit this little pretty. No bad thing as it's a light, delicate piece so better suited to spring than to the depths of winter - this past winter it would have needed to be a layer amongst many scarves.
Pattern: Falling Leaves Mohair-Silk Scarf
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Night - 1 skein
Needles: 4.5mm Bamboo Straights
Started: 9 January 2010
Finished: 30 March 2010

It's a soft snuggle around the neck, a gentle touch which will be a gift for a gentle lady, a little token of love that will be held dear for the sake that I made it whether or not she likes the scarf, though of course I hope she does. I think that the best recipients of gift knits are the ones who see beyond the item to the work within. As my Dad said, having made my Mum a carrier for taking water for his chickens, it's the time that goes into a gift that counts :)

Your scarf is so light and filmy -- just lovely. I can't imagine the recipient won't be touched.
