One of the joys when working a basic pattern, is how the plain shape shows off a luxurious wool and it's texture. Ohhhh....the simplicity when in the end, the fiber and pattern intertwines and fuses to becomes one.

I find I am totally into the process....just have an issue with this pattern design and colorway of the kit. Perhaps it's just me, you know, Not My Color... Not My Style! Anyhow, I did learn the basic concept and hope a friend or family member might take a liking to piece!
A second Domino scarf has already been cast on for a three row Domino scarf. This design comes from the book, Domino Knitting by Vivian Hoxbroand. Domino knitting is not a fast process, but is a most interesting one. I have completed a row of three squares already and I likeeeee this project and feeling successes with each finished square. The Skinny: Knit One Crochet Too Yarn. Handpainted 70% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk, 10% Cashmere. Color #1480 (Mauves, Blues, Greys)
I should have pics real soon!

I used two skeins of Optik Berroco.
My scarf was knit using size #13 needles.
Cast on 18 stitches.
Knit, Knit, Knit to 50"/60" long. (Garter Stitch)
I cut fringe to 9" for both ends.
My sister-in-law loved mine and I made another one just for her (same color of course). What a fabulous quick gift!
