Purple Rain

This is the second time making Wisp. The first time I made it using Rowan Kid Silk Haze like the pattern called for. Then I started seeing Wisp being made in all sorts of yarn. Like this one and this one. So when my cowl didn't work, I decided to take a shot at using my cashmere yarn on Wisp. I'm so glad I did! It is probably the softest item that I have ever made. The scarf looks totally different than my first Wisp. The stitch definition is much more defined. I have to knit carefully because the yarn is so delicate that I'm afraid that I will rip the yarn when knitting two stitches together (I've already did this once). I'm addicted and I can't wait to finish..so I'm off!


Specs:
Wisp
Sapphire Exotic Fibers
100% Cashmere

I don't know how I missed this pattern on Knitty the first time round. Maybe because I got cranky with them and their slow server on opening day and forgot to come back? Anyway - what a cool pattern, and I LOVE, LOVE yours - both!

Wow! First of all purple is my absolute favorite. And second of all, any reference to his purple highness makes me smile.
This is beautiful Jane!
