Fair Isle Rapids (3)

Yes, I did finish the Fair Isle Rapids scarf that I started before Christmas, though it did sit unworked in the corner for a while when the 'flu chased my concentration away.  I loved this project, even though it took me a couple of goes to get the hang of the stranding, and as soon as I got used to the pattern, it worked up very quickly.

Here's the finished scarf being blocked:

This is where you really see how clever the pattern is; it does look like a river and its rapids, and I'm still in awe of its designer, Kieran Foley.

Some quality checking:

Here's the finished scarf, all ready to go to its new home:

And then I made another one!


  1. Really beautiful work Sara. Love the picture of the paw doing the quality checking :-)

  2. Thank you, Angela! Yes, my cats have very stringent standards...they keep me on my toes :)

  3. That is truly, truly beautiful! I'm in awe! (-;

    1. Thank you, Clive; it was a lovely pattern to knit.
