Mist for Star Search Sunday

This luscious scarf was knit by Lisa Dykstra with Crystal Palace Kid Merino. The free pattern can be found at http://www.straw.com/.
It is just gorgeous, isn't it?

Kid merino is a very interesting yarn - lots of wonderful colors
- here are just a few - and fun to knit.

If you want to knit it double stranded, you can make smashing socks - like this lovely lace sock.

You can also do a mix and match with the colors and come up with a rainbow sock,
as shown here.

The patterns for the scarf and for both sock designs are in the pattern files at http://www.straw.com/.

ps i have an elegant man's scarf with KM in the works.
