Drifting pleats finished

I am loving this book! It is full of unique techniques and I have lots of yarn that if just enough for a scarf, so I plan to work through lots of these designs. Here is my first--the Drifting Pleats scarf. It took 130 grams of Horstia Maulbeerseide-Schurwolle in 50% silk/50% wool. I love the sheen and the buttery softness. The pattern was fun to work and easy to remember after the first little bit.

Coming soon: Look for a sock monkey blanket!
