This scarf seemed to go on and on forever while I was knitting it, and I didn’t think I’d end up liking it a whole lot. I’m so glad I didn’t frog it, because this is a great scarf!

It was my first time knitting with both of these yarns, and I hope to use them again. The Aurora 8 is sooooo soft and smooth. It was great to work with, and it makes a very soft scarf.

The Ultramerino 4 is very soft, also. I didn’t know before knitting with it that it is a sock yarn. Because it is so thin, it keeps this double-sided scarf from being to bulky.

After pinning the scarf out to block, I noticed that the pink in the Ultramerino had pooled to make a zig-zag pattern on the scarf.

This is one time I like the pooling!

I’ve also finished the Oak Ribbed Socks. FO report coming soon!

    Wow, the colors are wonderful. What a lovely scarf. I have always admired that scarf in the book.

    So pretty! I love the combo of the solid color with a variegated yarn.
