Faraway, a seaside scarf


inspiration struck while at the English seaside....

combining the new "Rowan Finest" yarn
with a Rowan classic, "Kidsilk Haze Stripe"

I didn't finish knitting until I was home here in Ontario....


it is high summer, and I want to photograph a scarf
that combines Mohair, Wool, Cashmere and Alpaca!

was I crazy????

well, I may not live near the seaside, but....
off to Lake Ontario we went, for a "seaside" feel...

this combination of Rowan Finest and Kidsilk Haze Stripe
 is incredibly luxurious!

knit simply in alternating sections of 
stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch....
inspired "over the pond" 
it is a great reminder of a wonderful vacation!
(I love the pockets in this top)
it floats in the breeze...
...ahh, that feels more like the seaside!

  6. The colours of your scarf capture so well the beautiful colours of the sea. Thank you for your comments of Daisy and the link to Harley, poor boy he looks so cute! We are in the process of selling our house at the moment so won't do anything until we are settled. Sarah x
