|One of my travel destinations this summer was Venice, Italy.|
What inspired me?
- airy, stone lace of palazzi on a busy and beautiful Piazza San Marco
- old narrow calles - like wrinkles on fabric
- fading pastel buildings looking like unraveling knitting
- numerous canals and crooked bridges like yarn on the needles
- evening magic of orchestras on St. Mark's Square
|All of the above inspired me to make|
something vintage and elegant,
airy and kind of transparent,

200m/25 g - 2 balls
|The design for this scarf is taken from the Europe's Top Knitting Magazine Verena - Winter 2008. I very rarely use patterns from magazines, but in this case, I followed almost all the instructions and recommendations. |
I changed the colour a little: not pure white but faded shade of off-white.
The two lace patterns were used.
Scarf length size is 10 x 205 sm.
I started knitting the scarf on the plane and finished it in Toronto.

|The scarf is not very busy, heavy or too warm, so it can be a great accessory for any summer|
or winter outfit.

|Venice is not a 'man' city (like New York) to me. Venezia is a woman ... aging gracefully ... knitting its yarn of dreams, trips, people, stories ... keeping glowing from the inside :-))|
