Sea foam scarf


I knitted this as my February entry in My Poet's Calendar Project(http://poetscalendarproject.blogspot.com/); it will also be my entry for the Guild's challenge on the theme of "elements", this one being water. I dyed the wool with acid dyes, wound into tight balls, which gives a nice gentle random effect of sea green and white, water and foam. The pattern is a traditional Shetland lace pattern - New Shale -one of my very favourites for scarves. It's a simple, but effective two row pattern, which I'll write up and post in the Make it! pages if you'd like to have a go; any thickness of wool will do from chunky to lace weight, and it lends itself to stripes too, so you could make a stashbuster!
