I know that I have mentioned before that I love to knit. I just finished my first laceweight scarf and I am addicted to working with this type of yarn. I had purchased my yarn at The Loopy Ewe and it is very nice quality. I highly recommend using their yarn.
The color of yarn that I used was this one.
Isn’t it beautiful?
I used this yarn to make the Dropped Scarf available at Ravelry.com. You can get the pattern here. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dropped
Instead of using the tiny tiny knitting needles recommended in the pattern I used a size 6. What I love about Ravelry is that many people complete the patterns and then they share their finished project and tell what changes they made. When I saw one woman’s scarf using a size 6 needle I knew that I had to do it too.
Yesterday I blocked the scarf and removed it from the pins this morning. The scarf went the entire length of the guest room bed and was 8 3/4 inches wide. I can’t wait to wear it to work. I want to add beads to the end but will have to wait until I order the beads. Check this out.
