Tan and spring green linen tape

Scarf, linen tape, garter stitch, two colors, size 3 wood cable needle, 24 in

Second attempt - the first attempt didn't even last long enough for a photo. This one was a basketweave stitch.

This is the third attempt at a design using this very fine linen yarn from the Japanese company, Habu Textiles. The two colors fascinate and enrage me because I love them together but the previous two designs just couldn't bring that balance that is needed.  I've settled back into a garter stitch, which alternates the colors each row. 

The yarn at this point still has a crispy texture, and I cannot WAIT to see what it's like once it has been washed! The tape is suited to the garter stitch and enhances the pebbly effect.
