Tiger Eye Lace Scarf

scottly's picture

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. It was knit from both ends then grafted in the center. According to the pattern 30" halves should block out to 72", mine blocked out to 80+". I guess it's just the difference in yarn used. Do you all find that merino stretches out more when blocking then other fibers?

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving - I sure did!

Extremely nice, Scott. I really like that shade of green - even though I am not normally a green fan. The fact it blocked a bit longer just means there is more love there for someone to wrap up in. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

How beautiful! I'm trying to work my first project in lace for a Christmas gift, but so far I've had very little success =/ This is gorgeous work, though. Congratulations! =)

That is really beautiful and don't worry - longer IS better!
I don't knit with wool (allergies) but I do find alpaca blocks longer or bigger. :-)
