I am Proud to present..........


Project: Alpine Knit Scarf - pg. 36
Yarn: Jade Sapphire (Cashmere)
Color: Blueblood Red - Color way #4
Yardage Used: 1000 approximately (2 ½ skeins)
Needle: Size 4 bamboo
Adjustments: The pattern calls for 37 repeats of the middle section and I did 43
Blocked size: This blocked out at 23x80 (perfect)

I can not tell you just how much I love this. The color is breath-taking and I think I've finally gotten you a good look at the color in the early morning sunlight.

I attribute the blocked width to the yarn and the length to the increased repeats.
Would I do this pattern again - ABSOLUTLEY!

You so deserve to be extremely proud. I've never been brave enough to attempt a lace pattern that changes each row, except on edgeings. I think this is one of the prettiest patterns in the book. I like so much that you write the yarn and the needle size used. A lovely morning surprise to view your beautiful work!

Wow, that's stunning. Love it. It's agorgeous pattern to knit. And yours blocked out better than mine I think. Have wore my Alpine scarf almost every day since I finished it.

Stunning. It's absolutely beautiful.
This is one of my favorite designs too. Would really like to knit it and now I am inspired.

Congrats on that beauty.
