gust

second in the little nothings scarf series, this weightless rectangle of alpaca and silk wards off a sudden chill or tames the hair on a windy drive or walk.
later, it magically folds away into a pocket or bag for another time.

kudos to jocelyn and carrie who test knit the pattern with relish, and to our dear rachel for proofreading (she’s SO good at it) and making it perfect.
what would we do without them??

    In keeping with its name, the lace pattern also looks like rows of sailboats in a full breeze.

    Those colours look divine with your skintone, I noticed that on the other post photo… and since that particular shade of green looks poo on me, I found myself staring at the photo in pure amazement :^), lucky you!

  22. Kim U says:

    Yikes, one second I was admiring the scarf and the yarn and the next second I was clicking the “order” button at ball & skein :) Great match between the yarn and the pattern, looking forward to knitting one myself.

  23. Kathleen C. says:

    And is that your Bleeding Hearts Shawl I see in the preview of the Spring Interweave Knits?
    Wowza!!!!
    You’re good. Really, really good…

    You’ve just been given a “You Make My Day” award from We Heart Yarn! Thank you for making my day!

  25. Jocelyn says:

    I don’t know how you do it! Yup, this one’s a keeper :)

  26. Cheryl says:

    What a great pattern for Judy’s beautiful yarn! I love it.

  27. courtney says:

    This little photo shoot is SO beautifully styled. It really brings out that scarf in every way. The fourth image looks like it could be on the cover of a novel.

    It really makes me want to knit this scarf! Mission accomplished.

  28. Carrie says:

    Ha! Test knit. Well, I did make it through one pattern repeat and I loved it. If only the toddler and the germs and the DH’s pneumonia and that pesky work thing would leave me alone so I could knit more.

  29. KERaven says:

    It’s absolutely beautiful. I already ordered my kit! I’m planning to give it to my mom — if I can part with it once finished.

  30. Alicia says:

    Lovely blues and greens. I have bookmarked the kit. Beautiful!

  31. Vicki says:

    The perfect little scarf! Gorgeous as usual!

  32. Ronni says:

    Kit in my cart already. Now I just need to decide how many other skeins of yarn I “need” from there. Because you can’t go shopping for one thing without a quick look around can you? That was quite a while ago btw. Sigh. No wonder it takes me so long to finish knitting something. I keep getting distracted by the new pretties.

  33. Marisol says:

    Its gorgeous Anne! thanks again for another lovely pattern.

  34. Teyani says:

    gorgeous. and thanks again to david for a great photo shoot. I was just over at ball and skein to see their fabulous yarn choices – would that I could buy them all~

  35. michelle says:

    I just saw this on Judy’s blog the other day. You two make a great team :) Storm is calling my name…

  36. mary says:

    Gust is simply lovely! Thanks for the inspiration and the lovely pictures.

  37. Wanda says:

    That little nothing is whole lot of something. Very nice!

  38. gilraen says:

    I love this!!!! And I might have enough skill to actually knit it :)

  39. Leslie says:
