This scarf would have deserved a sunny day for picture taking, but there's no sun at all. It's like Narnia here!
I'm in LOVE with this yarn. It's Sea Silk by Hand Maiden. Wonderful! It's got fantastic drape and it's cool to the touch. It's shiny (oooh, shiny) and smelly, I don't care about the smell. The Lady at the yarn store told me the tale, that this yarn has vitamins in it and if you wear it around your throat (or anywhere next to your skin) it will be absorbed. She said, this is actually yarn which is good for your health! ;o)
Well, I would have bought it anyway and this story scared me a bit. What about the dyes in the yarn. Will they be absorbed into the skin as well? Nevertheless, it's so beautiful and should I really tell you? - I've got more of it! Different colors too!
