White wool and golden thread

Scarf made of white wool knit and golden glitter thread.
The patterns on it consist of wavy lines and almost like drawings.
The overall effect is lace like,
taking inspiration from the revival of lace and netting on clothing.
The popularity of wool throughout the autumn and winter has been really important in getting me to see this material in a contemporary light. Mixing coloured wools with glittering threads and beautifully designed knits has been a key textile popular trend.  
My first white woollen scarf in years.
A birthday present that is still in pretty good nick.
