I made through my pattern problems and finally finished the Tiger Eye Lace Scarf. It's in Malabrigo sock with size 5 needles. It went amazingly fast but blocked a lot longer then it was supposed to.
Just wanted to share some pictures of the creature I just finished this Thanksgiving evening.

For my friend Tia for her birthday. Modeled beautifully as a shawl by Nicci of Close Knit Yarn Store on Alberta in Portland, OR.
