Quiviut Feather and Fan Seaman's Scarf
The brownish thing shown on top of the pink shawl is actually another Seaman's Scarf, this one in Feather and Fan stitch, one of my favorites. The yarn is quiviut (aka Musk Ox down), which is very light but very warm. I like knitting on this kind of scarf, which is knit from both ends of a ball of yarn. When it's close to being finished, I weave in the beginning yarns, then when I'm done knitting it's ready to wear. A nice, neat, way to finish using a ball of yarn completely up.
