Rose Quartz - Silk Lace Scarf

Here's another 'sheep to scarf', although this is more of a 'worm to scarf'. This story started with a lovely skein of silk yarn, cool and soft to the touch. This was then kettle dyed, a process where I immerse the skein of yarn into a pot of water and acid, and apply dye and heat. The result is pools of color with variation in hue and saturation, creating an interesting texture of color. This yarn was then knitted into a classic lace pattern scarf to make you feel like a movie star! ;)
