This was an extremely easy project. It is very delicate knitting and I would recommend using lotion on your hands that does not stain just before you start knitting. It does not show in the pictures but there are very small gold specs throughout the yarn that gives the scarf just the right amount of shimmer.
The scarf is extremely lightweight. The color selection for this yarn will have you salivating. I knitted till I ran out of Stella which has 70 yards per skein. A little pricey for both, however, I think I could knit a 2nd scarf with the purchase of just Stella. I will use my little scale to weigh what is left of Charles to make that determination. I think the total cost for the yarn was in the $22 range.
