Japanese Waves in Berocco Ultra Alpaca Fine

Aaronknits's picture

I just finished this yesterday. I had been itching to start another lace project and after several failed starts at other patterns, this one actually came to be. This used just one hank of the Berocco Ultra Alpaca Fine and size 4 Addi lace needles. It measures about 6 feet long and about 7.5 inches wide blocked. I dread blocking my lace projects, but this one ended up quite easy. It was very easy to determine where to place the pins so that they're evenly spaced, and using the lines on the rug in my basement (my trusty blocking "board") it was easy to get an even width on the scarf.

This scarf is going to be another auction item for Italian Greyhound Rescue. We are having our second annual Wine Tasting Benefit this year and this will be up for auction at that event.

Great pictures - incredible

Great pictures - incredible knitting. The more lace I see, the more I want to knit. it's a feedback cycle - but is it a postive one?
