Finally, I have another FO to share with you. Haven from the new Kim Hargreaves book. Heartfelt- The Darkhouse Collection.
It's for my Mother- In-Law who has a "Big" birthday this week. I'll be giving it to her this weekend when my Husband's whole family is going to spend a few days together, celebrating (although, it's more likely there'll be much bickering and arguing and getting on each other's nerves!) by having a special birthday meal and drinking very posh wine in a big house on the Suffolk coast.
Haven from Heartfelt: The Darkhouse Collection by Kim Hargreaves.
Cocoon by Rowan in "Tarn". I used 3.5 balls. The pattern suggests 5 balls, but 4 should be plenty unless you want an ULTRA long scarf.

This was a lovely project to knit. The yarn is absolutely gorgeous. It's super soft and warm and knits up beautifully. However, I think I may be slightly allergic to it, as every time I knit with it, my eyes get a bit itchy. I didn't let it stop me though as I love it so much!
The pattern called for 27 repeats of the lace pattern, which should use around 5 balls of yarn. However, I stopped after 20 repeats (3.5 balls) as the scarf was nearly 6 feet long. I'm really glad I stopped when I did, as when I blocked it, it grew to nearly 9 feet long! Good job it's designed to be worn wrapped several times around the neck! I'll be sad to part with this project, but I know it'll be loved and well looked after by my MIL who is a great giftee as she's a knitter herself and therefore, appreciates a handmade prezzie. I'll be casting on another Haven pretty soon as when I bought the yarn, I actually bought enough to make one for myself too.
