Eye Candy Friday: Scarves on my mind

The Massey Wrap is not the only scarf that's currently keeping my attention. Here's a little lacey something that I'm in the process of designing:

Simple pattern, yarn with long stretches of color, plus short rows = mesmerizing effect. I can't put the scarf down because I always want to see what color the next row will bring ;).

LOVE your design and the yarn, also.

What yarn is that? I wants.

Can't wait to see the details on this! :)

oooooooooh love that!!! more info please!!

Oh wow! I can't wait to see more of this!

Wow - beautiful colors!

It looks stunning (and like it would be satisfying to knit)!

Its lovely!


.....i want to touch it. I am mesmerized from here. And enchanted. And in love? Yes, I'll say it - I'm in love! I'm already plotting what yarn I'll use. I can't wait to drape this one on.

wowza!! i'm excited to see the whole thing!

wowza!! i'm excited to see the whole thing!

One of the few times knitting actually TOOK MY BREATH AWAY!! Seriously stunning.

I can't wait to see it being modeled in completion. It must be so exciting seeing something like this coming together.

Ooooh that's gorgeous! Can't wait to see the FO!

OH MY GOSH this is so so beautiful!

I can't wait to see it all done!


That looks really interesting. I´d love to make one myself.

Wow, it looks beautiful. I would love to see the whole thing soon!

Ooh I see what you're doing there.

That would be perfect for some yarn I bought in Sweden, handspun Gotland with long colour changes between black, grey and a deep red (dyed before it was spun, so it's nice and subtle). It was sold by weight off the spindles and I had to have some (I also have some in various natural sheep shades)

Because knitting time is limited and because my mother only makes charity hats, I was thinking of giving her the yarn, needles, and a pattern to make a simple diagonal garter stitch scarf (they had one on display in the shop and it was perfect for the yarn).

Your pattern would be even more perfect... however I would have to knit it, because Mum (who taught me to knit) would freak out at short rows.

Oh my god this is GORGEOUS. I hope you're designing it for a pattern release we can have soon, I'm already dying to make one!

This looks really lovely. I recently got some Noro Sekku which this looks remarkably like and this would be a perfect match! Fingers crossed for a quick release on this pattern.

very curlicuesque!

This looks beautiful - both the scarf and the yarn, can't wait to see the finished project!

Wow, that's beautiful!

That is one beautiful piece of work.

Looks gorgeous, Kathy! Can't wait to see the whole project!

Gorgeous! Can't wait to hear (really, SEE) more.

How gorgeous is that!? (very) =)

I love it! Can't wait to see the whole thing (and the pattern)!

whoa! this is beautiful, K!

Oh wow, that looks simply stunning! Definitely looking forward to you publishing this pattern and telling us what the yarn is!

Really beautiful and looks totally addictive to knit!

It is gorgeous! And I have a feeling this pattern would be awesome for handspun yarn... I can't wait to see more!


Beautiful!! The colors are gorgeous, and I love the texture of the yarn also. I'm looking forward to hearing more!

Beautiful pattern, and gorgeous colors and texture! I am looking forward to hearing more!!

amazing! the colours are really splendid : )

I'm having the same problem (not being able to put it down) with Schoppel-Wolle crazy zauberball recently. It's totally addictive.


The stitches and colors look gorgeous so far. I can't wait to see the whole project!

Well, now I have a reason to finish this spinning project. Do you have an estimative of yardage??

Sounds like a fun scarf to knit! Reminds me of when I knitted the Noro Striped scarf. It was so addictive!

Cannot wait for more.....I'm really wanting to knit a quick but semi challenging wrap for a Christmas gift!

oh my, i love it.

oh yum.
I want to see the results....

Ok, my first reaction: WOW. I'm not surprised to see so many others said the same thing and I can't wait to see more.

Gorgeous!! I can't wait to see the pattern.

Just the sort of design that I love too! I'm just finishing up a large shawl right now so I'm in the market for the next pattern...hint...

Stunning! I want this pattern! Can't wait until you finish this and show it off in all it's loveliness.

Can't wait to see this in full, it looks stunning!

Very interesting! Can't wait to see this one.

That. is. GORGEOUS. Rarely do I get this enthusiastic. Can't wait to learn more!

I'm a notorious lurker - I *never* comment.

Your teasing photos have dragged me out of lurkdom.

Very much looking forward to more details on that there bit of knitted goodness.

And now, back into the shadows I go. ^_^

this is GORGEOUS. I think I can start to see what you're doing - and the yarn will make all the difference, won't it?

Can't wait until this done and shown...

I agree with queenknitsalot - took my breath away. Simply beautiful. Please publish pattern. Pretty please. Off to join Jen in the shadows...

Oh that's beautiful...and enticing! Can't wait to see the pattern.

Simply gorgeous!! Simple yet it draws you in...elegant in the color transitions as well as the flow of the pattern. I will HAVE to have that when you publish it!!

That is beautiful. I love how it looks almost like you used a different yarn for each color section.

Stunning! I love this idea. Can't wait to see the finished item.

I LOVE it! Can't wait for the pattern. It looks like Noro Sock, is it?

I'll be looking out for the pattern as well...love it so far!

*flails* Dear heavens, that's GORGEOUS.

Oooh, looks gorgeous so far!


Whoa! That is SO cool! Can't wait to hear the details!

I am mad for this and tons of Noro await.....Want the pattern!!!
