Here is what I have been able to accomplish on the new scarf this weekend. I am doing a modified version of the "Ruffled Roses Scarf" by Annie Modesitt (I am leaving off the ruffled fabric).
A few musings...
1) I love the beautiful Merino Wool from Malabrigo Yarn. (That was another posting.) However, I am just not liking the varigated look with this lacey pattern! It seems that the pattern itself begs for a nice solid to show it off. Oh well... next time!
2) Colors... I swear this yarn had lovely hues of navy and gold as the predominant features when I bought it. While the color does fluxuate depending upon lighting, etc... all I seem to see now is an orange and black pallete with sprinkles of olive green! The "Army of One on Halloween in Lace" Scarf?
3) I am looking forward to Christmas being over. No more scarves! No more knitting for gifts. I want to tackle knitting something for myself... my first sweater. Something with lots of different cables and new stitches to learn! Any suggestions?? (Size XXL)
I hope you all had a great weekend!
