That scarf again

I am haunted by the multi-stripe scarf sewn in two pieces! Remember that Gap holiday scarf last Winter? I planned one in leftover sock yarn and tweedy 4ply, but I did not get very far. I am inspired, but I don't like the way tweedy 4ply feels on my neck! I am going to think about what Kaffe would do if he had a very sensitive neck. I could sew all my stripey swatches together for half the scarf and then sew on a strip of printed wool or velvet for the other half. I like wool fabric with hand tied yarn fringe, why not take it a step farther with a knitted wool scarf sewn to a woven wool scarf?

aaaaargh! Don't get me all het up about this briliant idea again! I so wish that I had done mine last year in sock yarn instead of DK/worsted. It is so very heavy; so woolly. But the look is divine.

What catalog is this new one in?

It would also be cool to do this with knitted fabric from the fabric store, if such a thing exists. Is that heresy?

This is a page from the FT magazine, How to Spend It, featuring a Drakes lambswool scarf for £95. Favorite Drakes-London.com web site quote: "Our hand writing is perhaps best described as Quirky English Chic, and best explained as the way the Italians and French imagine English style to be, but in reality is sadly harder and harder to find these days."
