Knitting Week

This is a scarf knitted lengthwise on circular needles. I used Chunky yarn, silk ribbon mohair and 8 ply yarn. All the yarns are hand dyed in mulberry, purples, blues and a touch of rust and light brown.
Have been wanting to knit a neck scarf for ages and finally finished this scarf. I used the softest hand spun grey wool from my sheep and added an orange/rust detail with buttonholes. In the button stash I found 2 perfect carved buttons. Plan the knit more of these scarves with different colour detail. This style of scarf is very warm.
