Another one of my finds at Stitches West, but this year. I really love Handmaiden Sea Silk. It has a beautiful hand, and the colors in this skein, called Rose Garden, made it a joy to work with. I had been playing with this for a while, trying to figure out what would be the best pattern for it. After searching the Ravelry database for a while, I kept coming back to Amy Singer's Montego Bay scarf from an issue of Interweave from last year. I'm glad I cast it on.
The fringe was interesting. It is braided and knotted, and adds some nice weight at the ends of the scarf. If you have the chance to work with Sea Silk, it is totally worth it. This scarf would be a wonderful addition to your wardrobe!
