Tess Designer Yarns Merino/Angora Blend Mistake-Stitch Rib Scarf

I thought this scarf deserved a daylight shot. This scarf is made in a 50/50 merino/angora blend dyed "Lime Splash" by Tess Designer Yarns. The scarf, in mistake stitch rib, is about 2.5" wide and a little over 6 foot long. For the first time in the history of my knitting, I am considering blocking a scarf, just to get everything to line up and be perfect when it comes out of its box for my sister-in-law.

I am thinking that I may need one of my own... but maybe instead of merino and angora mine will be out of some of Axelle's beautifully hand-dyed cashmere.

And in answer to some of the questions left in my comments yesterday -- yep, I am a U of Chicago grad. I was there from 91-97. And Buffalo? Most definitely. I was born there, and lived there until I was four. And is #9 really true? Oh yes, it most definitely is! We met in 1996 and were married in 1998. I know a good deal when I see one!

Oh my, thank you for that link to Two Pointy Sticks. What wonderful yarns!

Love the mistake-rib scarf!

Oh, man. Ditto the thanks to the Two Pointy Sticks link!

I agree... thank you thank you thank you for the link to Two Pointy Sticks! What fabulous yarn. Love the scarf!

As usual, lovely work. And the yarn! Such a beautiful color.

That's beautiful. Lucky sister-in-law.

That looks so soft and warm. You'll definately have to make one for yourself and cashmere oohh how lovely!

Wow! The yarn looks so soft I could almost feel it through my monitor!
