The finished project on Marguerite. (She doesn't like her picture taken, so she is headless).
I am very happy with the final product. Although I almost frogged and started over with a different yarn, my sister urged me to finish with this yarn. After the project hiberated for 9 months, I decided to take her advice and complete it. The yarn is Melange by Blue Sky which is fuzzy (has a halo), but very soft. In spite of its soft texture, it was somewhat itchy on the neck. I washed first in Soak and then rinsed it with a generic hair conditioner. It is not nearly as itchy now. If I were to make this scarf again, I would not use the fuzzy yarn, but would pick a smoother yarn to show the lace to full advantage. If a shorter scarf is desired, delete up to 7 repeats (it would then hang as shown but without the wrap around).
I taught a friend how to knit last night...a new flame has been lit!
I am trying to learn to crochet a sprial rope bracelet...NOT as easy as it looks!
Until next time,
