I want to keep my ISE scarf!



My Butterfly Beaded Scarf is done blocking and ready to be shipped to my International Scarf Exchange pal and I want to keep it!!! I am really pleased with the way it turned out. Blocking really does make a difference!

Statistics: 4 skeins or approximately 350 yards of alpaca / silk yarn (Queensland Collection Llama Seta 80% alpaca/ 20% silk) and 99 5mm rainbow beads. Pattern from Simple 1-2-3 Knitting Scarves available for purchase here for $3.99. This is the little booklet that was for sale in the grocery store a few months ago. I've now made two patterns from it.

Off she goes over the big blue ocean (hint hint.)

That's really nice - I've seen the butterfly stitch thing done several times but never much liked it before. The beads make all the difference. Not that I like beads, but they really make that scarf! :)

Wow! That scarf is really, really nice. I've been debating trying the whole knitting with beads thing for awhile...

It's arrived Bonnie and I have to say it's even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. It looks lovely and it feels lovely to wear.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love it to bits!

Sue - your very happy scarf pal :-)
