A Stunning Lace Scarf & Breathtaking Paradise

I did it! I’ve finished the knitted lace scarf, Muir, and it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever knitted. This soft, light and airy scarf weighs a mere 54 grams (2 ounces) but it is still deliciously warm, thanks to the finest baby merino wool that the Malabrigo yarn is spun with.

The lace pattern proudly shows itself after blocking and the colour variegation of the yarn failed to detract from the simplicity and grace of the knitted leaves and the gentle waves surrounding them.

This scarf once again reminds me why I knit. I may question the time, effort and money I spend knitting but in the end, it always blows me away to see what I’ve created with my hands, a ball of string and a pair of pointy sticks. No store bought, mass produced item can replace the love that goes into a handmade object like this.

I hope my much deserved friend feels the good vibe when she wraps this scarf around her. I may have struggled initially with knitting this but I perservered for our friendship. The memories of our times spent together filled my thoughts with each stitch and it spurred me on.

For all the times you’ve pulled me together, Marina, and the times we laughed despite the enormous stress we were under, this scarf is for you.

To end, let me take you to paradise. I took photos of the Muir knitted scarf on our bushwalk yesterday. We walked through rough terrain, climbing down steep rocks and ended up here. Our own little private bit of paradise that simply took our breath away…
