Traveling Scarf

I'm going away for the Canadian Thanksgiving, and bringing my scarf with me. I haven't had much time to work on it (Forbes Forest from Scarf Style) so hopefully I will have some time to work on it while I'm away, and then kick it in to full gear when I get back! Though I can knit on the plane, I'm packing it in my bag as it doesn't fit in my purse (900 metres of yarn is rather large). I haven't measured it but I'd say it's about half way done.

Happy advance turkey day to my fellow Canadians!

Oh, my gosh, Melissa. That is just the most beautiful yarn ever. I am drooling over it. What is it? What colorway? FABULOUS!

Oh, wow---I just checked in Scarf Style to see what the pattern was. It's just fabulous--the bobbles and cables. PERFECT choice. And ooooh, that yarn is going to look fabulous with that pattern. I've GOT to get that yarn! Please share what it is!!!!

It's Bluefaced Leceister Wool from Fleece Artist. I dyed it myself using Deka Batik & Textile Dye in colour violet. I would recommend using real acid dye and not kool-aid to recreate the colours.
