Alpine

Alpine Scarf
Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby
Zephyr lace weight - violet - 50% merino & 50% silk
US2 or 3mm Turbo Addis (circular)
60" x 18" finished size
Made for Poohla
This was a full time love-hate relationship. I'm so glad I finished it and that it blocked beautifully! But still can't wait to give it to Poohla and get it out of the house.
Note to self: You do NOT like to P2tog, YO or YO P2tog! It occured on ALL even row for Alpine and I have a bad feeling that it's part of the pattern for most of the non-heirloom knitting lace patterns you have. You need to get over it fast!

Lucky Poolah.
My worst lace maneuver is when you have to wrap the yarn around the needle 4 times- not fun.

But your shawl is exquisite.

You did a beautiful job. YOs before and after purl stitches are annoying.

We saw some amazing lace at the Knitter's Fair yesterday...I'm content to gaze.
