I'm Not Worthy

Actually...I am worthy, since I made the thing, I'm just not sure who else is. This scarf was originally intended to go into the ever-increasing-in-size bag of Christmas Gift Scarves, but now I'm not so sure. The last 1/3 of it was a total bitch, which is strange since it's exactly the same as the first 2/3. I must have frogged and reknit the last bit about 15 times. I kept making mistakes and it was absolutely maddening. Maybe I was suffering from over-confidence at that point. I'm very relieved it's done though.

Ever the masochist, now I feel the need to torture myself with more knitted lace. I found this free lace pattern site, which has all kinds of public domain knitted lace from the 1800's, so I'm thinking I'd like to design a scarf using one of these very old lace motifs. We'll see how that goes.

lovely scarf! I started a Branching Out, but somehow picked the wrongest yarn I could (100% cotton - no stretch and very splitty) and finally put it aside. I have to come back to it at some point soon. I am seeing so many pretty ones popping up!

Mmm, yeah...splitty might be very bad to be dealing with in this pattern due to all the knit 2 and 3 togethers, etc. I can only imagine your pain. I seriously highly recommend that Silky Wool. I got mine here and it came in a flash!

Jelousy is not a good friend to keep around, but I really never could pull off knitted lace. Maybe someday...sigh!
