I just couldn't wait to show you this one, I'm loving it too much!
It's the beginning of a scarf I'm making as a Christmas present for my younger sister. Originally I was just trying to use up some of my stashed yarn by trying out a few lace patterns I had found.

I didn't particularly like the colour but as I knitted up the lace I fell in love with it. Guess you can't even judge a skein by it's colour! It really reminded me of my sister's eyes (the colour, not the tiger-eye thing haha) so I decided it would make a lovely present for her.

Anyway, there isn't a pattern per se, only the tiger eye lace I guess you can find all over the place and on both sides of it is a simple 9st lace pattern.

Hmm... I'm using a yarn called Trysil Superwash Ullgarn. Basic sportweight wool yarn I guess. It's 100m/50gr pr skein and I knit it on 4,5mm needles.

I googled 'tiger eye lace' and found this: http://www.tmooka.net/blogs/stitchingirl/patterns/tigereyescarf.pdf

Thank you for the link, Ullgarn is that a icelandic yarn, sounds very similar to danish. I am originally from Denmark. how wide is your scarf as you say you added some lace edges on each side of the tiger eye. Must go look at my yarn and see if I have anything suitable.

No, the yarn is actually Norwegian. :) The scarf is 25cm wide (that's... ummm... what, 10 inches?) at the moment, I'm guessing it'll probably be around 27-30cm after blocking.

That's a nice width. post more photos as you progress and finish.
found some yarn (not the yarn) just something to practice on, just to make sure I could actually follow the chart. Was a bit worried about the blank stitches could not work out how that could be until I got there and then it all worked out fine.

will definitely make this scarf, my daughter was quite taken with it. just have to shop for some yarn.

So I finished the scarf a few days ago, I'm loving the result and I hope my sister will as well come Christmas :D
It ended up as a 2,25meter (7,4 feet?) long tiger eye monster of a scarf - and that's what we love.

Here are a couple of (bad) photos:

Sorry, I know that the picture is seriously out of focus but I wanted to show the length. ;)

Perhaps I can post better pictures when I can get someone to actually hold the camera!
