It looks--and feels--pretty and wonderful as a scarf.
It's really a stole.

Pattern: Verona Shawl
Needles: Size 9 (5.5mm) Addi Turbo Lace circulars
Comments: The color is one of those that's hard to capture on camera. The bottom photo is more representative of the true color, at least on my monitor.
Love the yarn. It's cushy and feels soft against my skin. It's thicker in some spots than others, and some spots are so thin you wonder if it's going to look all right when you finish. But I really like the way it turned out. And the pattern is so simple that you wonder if you really needed one. But Margrit at Morehouse has captured just the right look in so many of her patterns, and this is no exception. They are simply elegant, possibly due in part to her background as a graphic designer but more, I suspect, to her unerring good taste. Here's another project I made out of this yarn: Lace Cardigan. And another photo here.
I started out with regular Addi Turbos, but they were too blunt and slippery. Then I tried some Rosewood straights, but they had too much "grab" for the yarn. Finally, after settling on the Addi Lace needles, the project moved along quickly.
