This past weekend I was able to finish up the lacy, spring/summer scarf I was working on. The pattern, which I have named Pisgah, is simple and beautiful - I could have been done in just a couple of weeks if I hadn't gotten the 'itis. This is my last week of work, and this will be gifted to the lead teacher I've been working with. She's been a wonderful mentor, and a great friend - couldn't have asked for a better match!
While the scarf turned out fairly wide, by adding one more repeat, I could have made a nice stole. I'm thinking about making another one for myself like that - I love having big comfy knits to wrap around me!
The yarn I used was Araucania Ulmo cotton. I got it on clearance a few years back, and I really enjoyed knitting with it. The cotton makes it perfect for spring and summer and gives it a nice drape.
Isn't my mom such a wonderful model? She didn't want to show her face, but she's still beautiful! I'm thinking about releasing a pattern for this, but can't decide... any thoughts?
