Angora, soft as thistle down - no, softer! Soft as a cloud! No, how about soft as a beagle ear? This is Fleece Maiden Peter Rabbit (70% Angora, 20% Nylon 10% Wool) in a raspberry pink.

It's the Juliet Scarf from Louisa Harding's new book.
The lace is straightforward and knits quickly on #8s. It will be finished with a rosette.
