Back in May I was complaining of RSI from knitting my Phiaro Scarf. After I did the cast off and drop stitches thang it sat on the back of a chair waiting for the fringe to be plaited and the ends to be sewn in. Eventually I got around to that and I even blocked it and then it sat on the ironing board waiting to be photographed.
Finally, two months later I would like to present the finished Phiaro!
Pattern: Phiaro Scarf by Katie Himmelberg from Knitscene Winter 2007/Spring 2008
Yarn: Oasis by Southwast Trading Company in Chocolate #53 100% Soysilk
I'm quite happy with it but it has turned out to be very long, perhaps too long. I contemplated cutting off some of the length, but that would mean doing all those plaits again. Noooooo!
Now while this is a scarf, I think that this is a garment that I will actually get to use a lot here. The soysilk is cool on your skin while providing a small amount of additional warmth that is often required in an arctic air conditioning! Yay!
