Grey Mouse Scarf (2009)


grey mouse scarf Pattern:  “Rippling Waters” scarf, from Fiddlesticks Knitting

  Filatura di Crosa Superior (#27, grey) — silk and cashmere blend
Method:  Knitting
Completed:  June 14, 2009.

I called this the “mouse” project, because the yarn is so, so soft and fluffy.  Why, yes, I do know what a mouse feels like, but let’s not discuss that now.  The yarn is so very light — the entire scarf weighs about an ounce.

For those who are keeping track, this is the second time I’ve knit the Rippling Waters scarf — having done it in a heavier gauge project, as a stole.

Finished measurements (post-blocking):  49″ x 11 1/2″
