Those scarves

Remember I told you ten days ago that I finished a coupla scarves? Here they are, in near & far shots, beginning with the diamond-lace, hand-dyed silk-merino I bought (137 yards) from my long-lost friend Mary Ann of Three Waters Farm (meet her at MS&W!):

The second one's knit from the Skacel Fiori my friend Robin gave me for my birthday. The company promo describes this rayon-nylon novelty as "a lushly designed ribbon, which has been adorned with flowering buds." I knit each of the two 47-yd. skeins separately then united them at the center with a three-needle bind-off ~ I wasn't gonna try Kitchenering this frilly garter fabric. One skein I knit at a straight nine stitches; the other I used 13 and then dropped two stitches at either end, making fringed sides. The kbl from Clapotis was useful, and probably inspired me to try this. I haven't given it a dunking, but may, to unkink the fringe. Springy!
