it is not that long ago that i discovered this wonderful company and fell head over toe in love with it. my first encounter was in a wonderful yarn store in austin. i bought the #19 kit, a paper silk short sleeve jacket. i felt a little unsure about the yarn and just let it sit in my shelf. but than i saw the amazing jacket vanessa from colourknits made and now i am on it.
but i am talking much to much, here is a picture of the cashmere scarf
it is cashmere nep in color #1. it knitted up 2 skeins. i came up with the design, which is pretty simple. the stitch pattern is called 'vertical drop-stitch'. the cashmere was lovely to work with and it got even softer after washing.
