Gorgeous weave stitch! I love the yarn!

Jason said...

You are done knitting the scarf?!? Wow! That's fast. I love it! Looks really great. I picked up some Manos, color 110, yesterday. I wonder if I should put other stuff down and just enjoy knitting some scarf for myself. :-)

Emily said...

(Drooling all over the keyboard) that is utterly fantastic.

Suzie said...

You are one quick knitter. It's beautiful!~

Paula said...

The scarf is beautiful. And that colourway looks very familiar. Check my blog later to see if I'm right. How much Manos did you need to make the scarf? I think the stitch pattern is perfect for the irregularity of the yarn.

April said...

i don't think you could have picked a better pattern to use with that yarn - it's fantastic. wonderful job. :)

I loved that scarf pattern the minute I saw it. It really shines with Manos - and you have some gorgeous skeins there.

Sonya said...

Talk about your gorgeous knitting! This IS why we knit.

Susie said...

Is this not one delicious pattern? It does Manos right. It makes handspun look fabu.

And you made it look exceptionally excellent.

That puts my speed and scarf to shame! I can't think of a nicer yarn to knit that pattern up in, congratulations! Is it for you or someone else?

Karen said...

And this . . . is why I read your blog!! Gorgeous knitting. :)

Kelly said...

Wow. That is amazing. I'm in love. err.. with the scarf. Really. What size needles did you use? I'm going to eBay right now and bidding on some of that! Coz they have it there ya know.

Beautiful! I started this same scarf last winter and never finished it-now I'm thinking that was a mistake.

Love the scarf. I've had two hanks of Manos laying around for well over a year now with no clue what I was going to use it for. Now I know. Thanks!

Must... buy.... Manos. That is one fabulous scarf you have made.

I love it. I love that pattern, too. I tried it with a different yarn, but it really NEEDS to be Manos, doesn't it? I think I'll make another one this fall.....maybe in olive green Manos.

Emily said...

I love that stitch, and it's so much fun to do. But the colors of a nice yarn really make the world a happier place.
