ISE4 Scarf

ISE4 has been a wonderful experience for me. What a wonderful group of knitters, so talented and creative! And while my partner seemed like she might like anything, I did some further delving into her blog, which revealed more of her yarn preferences and I acted accordingly! So here it is, my first lace project and completed ISE4 scarf...


Isobel!


This is knit in a 100% merino laceweight yarn hand dyed by Etsy Seller White Willow. This yarn knit up like a dream and it has gotten me nothing but compliments as I knit it on the train, in waiting rooms, and everywhere I could carry my needles!

I'm not sure which picture better represents the color, because the first photo shows the scarf folded, but its a blend of raspberries and amethysts.

Not bad for my first lace attempt I think, and I am excited to send it off tomorrow with a couple of little goodies to match!

OMG! That is soooo pretty! Nice job on your first attempt at lace knitting- I'm impressed :) (I also loved your blog post title "I knit to keep from killing people..." That is too funny...and true! :P

So beautiful! Are you totally hooked on lace now? What do you have planned next?
