Lace scarf

My daughter asked for a lacy scarf, and wasn't particular about the yarn or the color. As a true knitter's daughter, she said "Mom, I'm sure you having something in your stash to use"! But of course I did :-)!
I found this wound cake of hand-dyed fingering weight yarn, in a muted dusty purple with flecks of cream and a light golden yellow. Don't know too much about this yarn since there was no longer a ball band attached, but it is a wool base. It knit up beautifully, blocked out so nice, and is very soft and drapey.
I used a free pattern found on Ravelry called Swell, which has a very easily memorized lace pattern.




One last winter accessory......I'm a bit tired of the SNOW!

  1. It is sooo cold in Chicago today, beautiful, but super cold. Maybe I'm just ready for spring! I love the scarf. She can wear this over her shoulders during the spring when it's still chilly out...if we ever get to just chilly :)
