Knitty – Branching Out Completed

My first finished object in 2008! All blocked and with ends weaved in! Yay!

Pattern: Branching Out

Yarn: 1 x Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in Bristol Red

Needles: 5.00mm

Measurements: 7 inches wide, 58.5 inches long (after blocking)

I did a total of 27 repeats with a few yards to spare. The pattern was simple to follow but requires some concentration. I had to unknit a few times because I wasn’t paying attention. I also found it impossible to memorise the pattern. Blocking did help to open up the lace a little.

The yarn does feel wonderful even though I’m a little sensitive to wool. The silk content probably helps some but there’s still a tiny hint of a prick for me.

Also, perhaps because it’s lace, it dried amazingly fast in our humid weather.

This is definitely a pattern I will knit again. I think the scarf makes a great gift!
