...that Muddling Through is the winner! Congratulations! Please email me at oiyi.yau(at) gmail (dot) com so I can send you the scarf. Thank you all for participating.

Here are 2 more examples of Shizuku. You can see that it also works well with variegated or semi-solid yarns.
Tomo's Shizuku
Tomo knit this one using Malabrigo Yarns Silky Merino. The color is called Indiecita. She made is for a friend's birthday gift and she told me her friend loved it. I think the silk content makes this a scarf a pleasure to wear around your neck.

Shizuku #2
I have been saving this yarn for a special project. It’s Buckwheat Bridge Angoras, 70 Mohair Kid & 30% Cormo, 250 yards. It is a natural indigo dye and produced entirely with solar power. I purchased it at NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, Rhinebeck 2009.
Shizuku #2
I knit to 34 stitches for the widest part and then started decreasing. I used 220 yds and had 30 yards left over. After blocking, this scarf is much longer than the original Shizuku. It's so soft and I love the color. This may be a hard one to part with.

I have been enjoying seeing everyone's version of Shizuku on Ravelry. It's a really quick project and there is still plenty of time to make one for a holiday gift. I already started another one for a birthday gift.

Oh, I am so excited! You know I don't knit, so this will be even more special to me. I was just telling my daughter the other night that yours was one of the first blogs I started reading when I discovered blogs. Thank you so much!!!

That blue is simply gorgeous and is shown off so nicely with the pattern! It's always fulfilling to work through the Rhinebeck stash.
