Seafoam Lace Scarf - Part 2

It's been awhile, but I have been working on my Seafoam Lace Scarf bit by bit over the weeks.  I started the scarf back in March.  I have finished the main scarf today and I'm loving it!  But, I'm not done yet though.  Here is what I have so far:

Scarf before the edging

The next step is to crochet an edging around the entire perimeter of the scarf with hemp yarn, Hempathy from Elsebeth Lavold. 

Light and airy

The hemp yarn feels like a thin cotton yarn.  I'm curious how this is going to work out because the weight of the hemp is a lot heavier than the mohair that the scarf is knitted with.

Hemp blended yarn

Mixing textures in knitting is always fun and adds interesting texture.  Stay tuned for Part 3.
