Sakaki in Grey

Loving wearing this scarf. Yes, it is more a scarf than a shawl the way the yarn springs up.
Pattern: Sakaki by Romi
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in colourway Two Butterflies went out at Noon ( I wonder if they ever came home)
Needles: 3.75mm
Fit: Cosily snug around the neck in a spiral or draped around the neck to add contrast to whatever black I happen to be wearing.
Modifications: I didn’t knit the lace panel or add beads, though I did add 4 repeats in the centre panel, thinking I had enough yarn to do so. Three repeats may have been optimal as I then had to cut short the finish, though I don’t think it’s noticeable.

What next? Well, there are all the patterns from Romi’s 7 Small Shawls ebook: The Pleiades, much of her back catalogue I want to knit (Brandywine for instance) and a recently published Kleio, 1st of the second ebook: The Muses. So it’s a fair assumption it will be another Romi, but which one? Any suggestions? I might even throw in a skein of yarn for anyone that can pick what I think I might knit next and from these yarns I have set aside:

  1. Madtosh Sock – Caribbean Blue
  2. Spud & Chloe Fine – Dragonfly (purple)
  3. Knitabulous – Kelly Green
  4. Fibrewebs – Port
  5. Wollmeise 100% Merino – Aquarius
  6. Wollmeise 100% Merino – Ballerina (purple)
  7. Wollmeise 100% Merino – Herzblut (red)

Spoilt for choice that’s for sure. It might have something to do with recent yarn purchases. Well the yarn stash was beginning to thin out really…

  1. I think it’s time to break out the red wollmeise and knit Kleio!

    Sakaki is lovely. Great colour and so smooshy.

    1. Mmm, and I wonder who I’d give the left over yarn to for their bumblebee??

  2. Hey chick,
    I have just knitted Asterope, and can thoroughly recommend this one from the Peleides book.

    1. Thanks Gemma, good to hear

  3. oh yum yum yum, so many yummies. kleio is lovely, i think id knit that in purple, and maybe the spud and chloe because you already have a wollmeise scarfy thing and also the wollmeise red socks. im all about the balance. heh. and the sakaki is lovely, it just suits you so perfectly.
