Yarn:Berroco Seduce (a blend of rayon,linen,silk,and nylon),color = Absinthe, 3 skeins (because that’s all the yarn shop had,it was on sale),needle size:US #7
Pattern from Knitted Laces of Estonia by Nancy Bush (my copy of this book was destroyed in the great kool-aid spill of 2012 and I can’t remember the name of the pattern)
This was my first lace project,knitted in 2009 to wear to my god-niece’s wedding. Frankly,it ended up with some changes because my yarn supply was limited and at that point in time I didn’t understand that if you used a different “weight”of yarn (as in a moderate versus lace),you needed a different weight of yarn (as in number of ounces/grams). It has a wonderful drape and heavy feel. Final length is 78″.
I made this scarf way back,when LionBrand Fun Fur first came out. I liked the colors and the sample hanging up at the craft store,so I bought 2 balls and started knitting. Like a lot of my scarf knitting,I just cast on and go to town. At present,the LionBrand Fun Fur is still my favorite eyelash yarn to work with,but in general eyelash yarn is my least favorite novelty yarn. Oh yes! This scarf is 74″long.

Often,when I go looking for yarn,especially if I’m hoping to create a little something for a friend,I drag nick along to help me with color selection. We nailed this one…this scarf was created for our friend Beth &she’s been stopped numerous times and told how beautiful the scarf is and how much it complements her coloring

Technique:six stitches, knit each row,do all of the turns in the same direction so that the scarf is one long corkscrew;the final scarf is 64 inches long.
I made a lot of scarves this year using novelty yarns,in particular Starbella. Although it’s classified as super bulky,it ends up being very lacy.
Purple,lavender,sage green,pale pink,and a deeper pink
High loft and lots of fluff
The colors are just fantastic

No pattern,just a scarf. Each row was Knit 2 Together,Yarn Over. It made a nice openworn lace. I love the colors,but this yarn sometimes makes my neck itch so it may become a gift at some point in the future.
