Artyarns Knit along

Rhapsody Glitter Light color 314

Over the month of December, it became quite apparent that I am in love with ARTYARNS.

Then, the other day, I noticed that Iris Schreier designer and founder of Artyarns is hosting a ravelry knitalong. Well, the only delay I had in deciding which colour and yarn to choose was the fact that I could not go to the store due to the massive snow storm we had on the 27th.

Well, yesterday, I ooed and ahhed at all the pretty colours. Finally, I asked Gilles to choose for me. He choose a beautiful pale blue with a hint of glitter. All the glamour a girl could use without all the fuss

Wanna join in?
Part 1
Here are the details:

This scarf uses Ensemble Light DOUBLED shown in color H30 Gold, to create a worsted weight version. You can also use Silk Rhapsody, which is already a worsted weight (if you use Silk Rhapsody Light, you will need to double it).
I designed this quick scarf for everyday use, and it is wonderful, cozy, and warm in cold weather to wrap around the neck several times. The edging is really old--from 1900, but it is simple, classic, and amazing. It is knitted from side to side, then stitches are picked up on one edge, and short rows help to form the crescent shape.

Here are the rules and regulations:
