Here she is..........

Here she is, Scarf with #20 Edging. I'm happy with the results all in all. It was knitted differently that what I've previously done and it wasn't bad at all. With each pattern that I do from this book I seem to learn something new and I think that's pretty cool.
In my rush to leave the house this morning, after I unpinned the scarf to make pictures, I forgot to measure the thing. Sorry! The yarn is Misti Alpaca and it took about a skein and a half.Now, I'll be honest with you.....there's a booboo with this scarf. Totally my fault or rather, my mis-interpretation of the pattern. I did not realize what I had done until about half way through the second edging. You know, I'm not even going to tell you what I did, because I figure, if you don't notice, I'm not telling...[wink]

Back for another scarf.....

While I've been off doing other knits, I was determined to come back for another knit from VLT. This one will be my 4th from the book and the 3rd one to be a Christmas present. I've choosen the Scarf with No. 20 Edging this time.

This one is in Misti Alpaca and as you can see, Red. Although, my camera does not do this color justice. I did several read throughs of the pattern before I started to be sure I totally understood the concept of the knitting since this one too is a bit different. However, it's an easy knit so far. I'm on the 12th repeat of the first edging and I just started this past weekend with limited times for knitting. [keeping my fingers crossed]

Agneta: A Handsome Triangle

Here comes a Photo of my A Handsome Triangle. I'm really pleased with it but the picture doesn't make it justice. The yarn is Babyalpaca from Stäket.
I've also started on The shoulder Shawl in Syrian pattern with yarn from Ullcentrum, colour Karamello

Handsome Triangle is done

Handsome Triangle is done (finally) and blocked (took forever to dry--all day! LOL), and though I got bored knitting it, I love the results.

There are more pictures--lots more!--on my blog.

Finally blocked!

This is the "Scarf with Fir Cone Lace" and it has been completed for some time but not blocked. Blocking it took a discussion with my husband as to whether the water would damage our dining room table (it didn't, especially with the heavy blanket I used under it) and worst of all, time and patience to poke all those needles in place. In the end, it worked out fine, though I did run out of both time and patience during blocking. Has anyone tried the needle and thread method mentioned in "A Gathering of Lace?" I envy not only the knitting on this blog but the ability to do expert blocking. I have a more detailed photo on my blog,
