Finished Objects – Heavenly Spiral

I was on a roll over Thanksgiving and finished the beautiful Spiral Lace scarf using KnitWhits Freia lace yarn in Purpleheart.   Two finished objects in one weekend, can you believe it!

In truth I completed quite a lot of this scarf while on the train up to the country, and during lunch breaks during the work week, knitting frantically outside in the chill at a coffee shop.

I am so pleased how well it came out!

Overall one skein of yarn in this pattern and size 6 needles produced a 14′ scarf, which I have been wearing with absolutely everything.  All twirled up into a flat disk, you can really admire the effect of the color transitions.

The shading of the colors is so very subtle, from rose to grey then cream then steely blue and mauve and the faintest of a purple at the end.   I tried it on by tripling the length for a standard fill for a blazer opening around the neck, or quadrupled and tucked around my collar like an Elizabethan frill.  Against my bright red winter coat the Heavenly Spiral is particularly fetching.

This shows the scarf doubled and hanging over the closet knob with my sis’s cat inspecting it. He approved.  He was quite excited about yarn in general and tried to “help” me quite a lot with this project.    Such a giver, hah.

 

I have been enjoying this scarf so much that I cannot bear to put it away, so it has been lounging along the back of my antique rocking chair, relaxed into lacey swirls twining against itself.

 

This yarn was fun to use and I still have another full skein left to play with.  Any suggestions?
