I'm using the Parsifal color way for a linen stitch scarf. It is a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to wear the final product.
I knit a little every night and I can't run the skein out (and the scarf is already 32 inches long.) I'll post a picture to the Facebook page.

One feel of this softly flowing fiber and your imagination will soar. Does it want to circle your neck as a lacy cowl or a generous shawl? Will it keep your hands or head warm for the winter? Maybe it will work up to be your go to tank top when the weather is changing. Lhasa Wilderness knows no bounds. This light sport weight blend is suitable for winter socks or - held double - works up quickly into outerwear. This is truly the yarn of many options whether you need something for your next project, your stash or your soul.
