Dancing Pearls Leaf Lace Heirloom Scarf

Finally done - the Dancing Pearls Leaf Lace Scarf.

Yep, it's a bit of a mouthful, BUT I wouldn't want you to miss any of the wonders of this scarf. ;-)

It's just so pretty in the gorgeous, soft, shimmery and beautiful Habu silk. The colour is a soft salmon pink which looks so pretty with the leaf lace pattern. The perfect scarf for a special occasion - from a ball to a Summer wedding, you can go wrong as this colour works with lots of other colours and styles.

I've embroidered the scarf with tiny cream glass pearls (almost 40 of them) which seem to dance across the silk and add a subtle shimmer.

Here's a details shot of my first ever attempt at grafting two pieces of knitting together with the Kitchener stitch. I found a brilliant tutorial on YouTube that made it very easy as it explained how to do it AND how to memorise it.

Here are two close-ups of the pattern and pearls:
