Lace Scarf

Hi everyone,

I have just joined this KAL. Like many of you, I received the book for Christmas and was entranced by the wonderful patterns and the history behind them. My Mother-in-law, sister-in-law and her mother all fawned over the book as well, so it looks like this will be the year of the knitted lace scarf for Christmas. I have really enjoyed seeing everyone else's projects.

I have started knitting one of the lace scarves, it is one that was poorly named and I think it is just called "Scarf", but I don't have my book in front of me. I am knitting this with Rowan Summer Tweed, which is a silk/cotton blend that is much thicker than the yarn called for in the pattern. Because of the larger gauge I only knit three repeats of the border. I am almost ready to knit on the second border, which will be a new skill for me, after I deem that the scarf is long enough. I really like this knitted at the larger gauge. Here is a picture from Sunday. Hopefully I will soon have a finished picture to share.

It's interesting to see lace patterns knit up in heavier yarn. Good luck.
