Socks or scarves?

When on holiday in the UK during September I purchased a 100g ball of each of two multi-coloured 75% wool 25% nylon mixes.  These were Rico Superba Poems yarn sold to be knitted into socks!

Not being a knitter I have hand-woven two scarves using these yarns as the warp.
In the first one, the red and blue yarn and colour #5, I used a  hand-dyed multi-coloured silk yarn as the weft and the finished scarf is 1670mm x 165mm and weighs 87g.  In the second one, lots of different greens and colour #3, I used a thin synthetic mottled gold coloured yarn as the weft and the finished scarf is 1430mm x 175mm and weighs 69g.

Two eye-catching scarves which you can knit yourself matching socks.  See them at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
