Purple Rain

New Project for KAL -- but I am not sure if it will be finished this month!!
I am calling it..."purple rain". It is based on the pattern (free from Ravelry) Shizuku by Angela Tong Designs. She says "Shizuku means drops or tear-drop shape in Japanese. This scarf is knit from side to side with the droplets knitted along one side. The droplets are made with short row shaping." I am making this out of Taos #19 --- which is purple-y. I have 2.5 balls to work with, about 320 yds, and am using #10s. If I finish this up with yarn to spare, I may make a matching hat...fringe and all! This is a gift for my daughter who is a chef at Foreign Cinema in San Francisco.

Lucky daughter! I've printed this pattern and want to make it soon. Yours is certainly lovely.

Great idea about the hat to go with it. :)
