Kauni Love

A year or so ago, I made a Baktus Scarf using Kauni yarn. The long colorways & color transitions make this one of my favorite yarns. Aunt E & Jen are currently doing a KAL (knit-a-long) for a Kauni shawl/wrap we saw at Stitches Midwest. Not to be left out, I went to my stash for the black/gray/white combo which is becoming a great Leaf Lace Scarf

The pattern is quick & super simple so hopefully I'll finish before the cooler weather settles in. Mom's eyes sparkled when I showed it to her so I probably won't get to keep it for myself (lol).

Finished the Minimalist Top aka the "Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear" sweater. All the stockinette wore me down so it didn't quite make it to tunic length. Fits nicely though & oh so warm. This was supposed to be my year of "11 Sweaters in 2011"....... well, Fuzzy Wuzzy officially rolls in as #1. What can I say but I certainly had good intentions.

That scarf is beautiful. Could you give more info about the pattern, please?

The Leaf Lace Scarf is designed by Janet D. Russell. You can find the pattern on her site:

Super duper easy, quick knit.

Great looking scarf and sweater! It a great fit. We can call 2011 the year of good intentions - I had a few myself! We can still try to go out with a bang by doing on KAL for that Vogue cardi I posted on your face book page. I'm not wild about the front but I love, love the back. Maybe when you finish your mom's scarf?

Your top fits you great!
