Introducing the Piaf Scarf

Yesterday was a day for completing a couple of projects.  It's amazing how productive you can be on a long weekend while still in your pajamas.  I finished knitting my Piaf Scarf which is a part of the Accessories: Autumne 2012 collection by Denise at Voie de Vie.

The magic of block transformed this beautiful scarf into a bulky lace beauty that will be gorgeous wrapped around the neck.  I used a thick and thin yarn from Briar Rose called Dreamweaver.

If you like this scarf, you have a chance to win the pattern so you can knit it yourself along with the other four patterns in Denise's collection.  The chance to win ends tomorrow.

Accessories:  Autumne 2012 collection which retails at $14.99.  The giveaway will run through this Sunday (tomorrow) then I will announce the winner next Friday.  The scarf I'm knitting is the only knit pattern in the collection.  The other five items are beautiful crocheted items that are really inspiring me to crochet. Here are the rules:

I was also at the spinning wheel for part of the day...after those yarns have soaked and set I will be sharing their loveliness.
