International Exchange Rate

One of my favorite swaps on Ravelry is the International Scarf Exchange.  I love creating for someone else and can't wait to see what I get in exchange.  My partner in this exchange is in Dover, Tasmania in Australia.   
The "Lace Ribbon Scarf" pattern is from the Spring 2008 issue of and made with Deborah Norville fingering weight sock yarn.  I love the blue and green colorway.  I wanted the colors to represent the color of the ocean.  The scarf was an easy pattern to follow and work up.  

The length of the scarf ended up being 82".  The design of the scarf is for the wearer to be able to wrap it around their neck and have length left to drape down.  My swap partner loved her scarf.  Below is the beautiful scarf from her.  It was made with hand spun merino from Tasmania.

 I love the colors and it looks great against my forest green jacket.  Although it is merino wool, it is very soft and subtle.
