Branching Out

January 4, 2008

I have so many FO’s and not enough time to blog them!  First with a Christmas FO I never got to share.  Blog, meet Branching Out, Branching out, meet blog.

Pattern: Branching Out from Knitty Spring ’05

Yarn: Malabrigo Lace in Lime Blue

Needles: Size 5 Susan Bates

I knit this for a Christmas present for my Mom.  After doing the Mystery Stole I was completely addicted to doing beads in my lace.  After I blocked it, I almost immediately went to the bead store to find the perfect match for this scarf.

I ended up using less than half the skein, so I could do another lace scarf with what I have left, which is about 29 grams.

I really enjoyed making this pattern, and overall it went fairly quickly.  It would have been even quicker without the beads, but not nearly as interesting.  The yarn is very soft, and was beautiful to knit with.

I still need a few people to sign up for the pay it forward so don’t be shy.

Thanks for all of the great comments about Anthony and my engagement.  It has been a very exciting holiday season.  I’ll try not to only blog about boring wedding stuff from now on.  :)

And I’ve almost caught up on reading blogs.  Only about 150 posts left, and still growing.  Will I make it before Monday?

    I like your scarf! I’ve knit that pattern twice myself, it was so much fun. I might need to do it again with beads!
