Well it started out like this:

And sloooowly morphed into this:

Kinda blurry (lousy winter light!) but you can really see the lace and color in this shot:

Elm Leaf Scarf
Pattern: Lace pattern from Barbara Walker’s Treasury (the first one)
Yarn: Interlacements Toyko, 50% merino 50% silk, not sure of the colorway
Needles: Inox US 3’s
Started: Forever ago (August! Could it have really been early AUGUST?!)
Completed: November 30, 2006

I didn’t show this earlier because I was so so lazy about blocking… since I wasn’t going to see the recipient until after Christmas.

I don’t want to knit any more lace very soon with a (somewhat) patterned WS. I like my resting purl rows!

This took forever, but it’s recipient literally jumped up and down and shouted “YOU KNIT ME A GREEN SCARF AND IT’S PERFECT” over and over and then refused to take it off until she went to bed. So. I’d say, successful. It also made my mum EXTREMELY jealous but don’t worry, mum, you’ve got some knittery coming your way.

With that, almost caught up on the FOs.
