English Lace Scarf
I have been in a knitting mood lately. Maybe spurred on by actually finishing a project or the hint that the weather may change soon. I have had this pattern for a long time. I bought it as a kit when we were on vacation several years ago. It comes from a cute shop in Washington called Churchmouse Yarns and Tea. The pattern is a beaded silk English lace and it is knitted on some scrumptious pure silk yarn from Debbie Bliss. It feels so good in the hand. The scarf caught my eye at the shop at first because of the beads and then I fell in love with the pattern. It is one of those patterns that I have to concentrate when I am knitting or I will loose my count. I love the color of the yarn. Hopefully, I will finish this scarf in time for fall.
