Silk-Yak Scarf -- WIP

I started knitting this scarf using left over yarn from other projects.  The two yarns are Lotus (Trendsetter) Tibetan Cloud (the tan color yarn, 100% yak) and Blue Ridge Yarns Silk Shimmer Lace (the blue color, 100% silk).  The pattern is my modification of Symmetry in Silk by Eugen Beugler.  I am pleased with the lovely drape and feel of the scarf. I had to order addition Silk Shimmer Lace yarn.  I hope I don't have to do the same for the Tibetan Cloud.  Here's how it's looking so far.
