Finished Object - Branching Out Scarf

I actually finished this on Friday but I just didn't have time to post the finished picture. Here's my Branching Out scarf in all of its glory.

Overall I really enjoyed making this scarf. It gave me confidence again that I can knit lace. The pattern was simple and knit up very quickly with my mystery yarn. My mother had said that she would really like this as a keepsake so it will go to her the next time we're together. I would definitely recommend this pattern to someone just starting lace for the first time but you should definitely invest the $10 to get a chart keeper to help you keep track of which row you're on.

Pattern: Branching Out
Yarn: mystery! (my mother's leftover skein from a baby blanket, probably acrylic blend)
Needles: size 8 metal straight
Time frame: 5/26/07 to 6/15/07

I love your scarf, especially in the thicker yarn! Your mom is lucky to receive such a nice gift!

Thank you! I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I'm looking forward to trying it with a lighter weight yarn next time.

Love it. Did you ever complete a clerical stole for your friend? I have a friend getting ordained soon and am finding it hard to find a knitted stole that seems appropriate. Thanks
