a Shetland Lace Scarf - in process

It's hard to believe it was only last week we were snowed and iced in and so, so, so c-c-c-cold...
...as today's sunshine warmed us up to the mid-60s, with a Southern Spring-like feel to the air kind of day that drew me outside to work on my knit project.
The pattern can be found in 'a stitch in time' by Lucinda Ganderton.
This yarn combines all of nature's colors, with just a bit of 'sparkle'!
I'm almost embarassed to admit the yarn for this project was purchased looong ago, in 2003-2004, and the project was 'officially' started in 2009, per my notes.  But after I finished my poncho, I remembered this Shetland Lace Scarf in-process project that had been tucked away, and sure enough, the colors are perfect, not only with the poncho, but also with the other new garments I've been making for this winter.

So, I'm on a mission to finish this pretty scarf while our weather is still cool enough to wear it!

You can read more about the Shetland Lace Scarf on my ravelry page.

Tomorrow we're forecast for low-40s and rain, rain, rain....

UPDATE 4.18.2014 ~ It's complete!!!  It finished at 7 1/2" x 82" and is perfect with my poncho!

  1. Very pretty yarn, Lisa.

    Cannot imagine sitting outside to do handwork here. Nope. The mittens I'd have to wear would make it very difficult.

    1. I have to say, I did think of you, my sweet Minnesota blog friend, as I placed my scarf on the green grass in the warm sunshine! Hope your getting more time in your quilt studio working on that pretty shower curtain!
