Sylvester's Sulka Scarf

I've finished the Scarf in Mirasol's Sulka, the fairtraded merino/ alpaca/ silk. Sylvester thinks he should have it but it's going to be a Christmas present for someone else. I did something stupid when I was making the slit, so I had lots of ends to weave in, but they're done now and I'm happy with it.

This is beautiful stuff to knit with, and more robust than it looks. John Lewis seem to be the only stockist in the U.K. so far.

Thankyou for the comment on my blog :)

The yarn is a discontinued Regia which I bought years ago, and I am a little sad to see the rest of it go - but that is what yarn is destined for, right? Wouldnt be fun if it just langushed in stashes forever - and my nephew would freeze, here in Denmark where it can get mightily cold ;)


PS: I like the look of your slit (keyhole?) scarf. It looks so cozy, and I think you should knit a little one for sylvester, in case he'd get cold.
