Cashmere Lace Ribbon Scarf

It truly is deliciously soft - this is the lace ribbon scarf that I was knitting for a dear colleague, out of a silk/cashmere blend. It has been a delight to work with, and will be difficult to part with.

I'd planned on finishing up sooner, but luckily our farewell luncheon had been pushed out until later this month. So I still get the chance to gift it in person.

Seems I like taking pictures of this type of scarf in a tree - I did the same with my last one. At least with the last one it was in the privacy of my Mum and Dad's back garden. For this one I was laid at the base of the tree in my front garden, snapping pictures up to the sky. I can only imagine what the neighbours must think about the eccentric English lady next door ;o)))

What great photos of the scarf. I hope the recipient realizes how lucky he or she is. If not, snatch it back. *grin*

It's beautiful! Your pictures are so clever and really show off a long lean scarf - at least the neighbors has something interesting to talk about :)

Don't worry about the neighbors. Mine think I'm batty and it hasn't effected me any. Love the scarf. It looks soft and luxurious.

Lovely!

I have often wondered what my neighbors think of me when I'm out taking pictures. It's art; they don't need to understand ;)
