This is a very, very, very late Christmas project that i am frantically trying to finish for next week. I wouldn’t be so frantic if I hadn’t already lied about its completion. It was an unexpected gift exchange and I panicked and claimed it was wrapped but forgotten at home. In reality the yarn was wrapped into a ball sitting in my "to be knit" pile. Crap!
Luckily I am 99% sure that the intended recipient doesn’t read my blog. If she does then "hi, sorry, i hope you like it!"
Actually for a first, real lace project, I am pretty happy with it. Its the Dragon Scales Scarf from Heritage Yarns. It’s based on a Barbara Walker pattern. I know, I am sooooo not a lace person, and I HATE working with lace weight yarn, but i really think the intended recipient is a lace person and the colors and pattern are her (i hope).
As for the color, I just want to warn people. This is knit in Knitpicks Shadow, color: OREGON COAST. Yep, that pretty color that’s a pale creamy grey with hints of green and pink? This is what it looks like in real life. Brown. Luckily, the recipient, I believe, is a big fan of brown. For the record, Lost Lake is dark forest green, also not as pictured. Seriously, Knitpicks, could you work on this b/c I am not the only one to be fooled by your Shadow color images.
