Here is a lace scarf that I recently finished. Well, it had been knitted
up for awhile but I only just got around to blocking it hehe.
The pattern is from a stitchionary and is called Falling Leaves,
the yarn is Opal Herbstmelodie. Seemed like the perfect pairing
when I was browsing for patterns to make with this yarn!

Really pretty, and the pattern does seem to fit the yarn perfectly, and vice versa.

Good job!

Thanks everyone! Unfortunately even doing a lace pattern it
got really boring doing a scarf. I guess I'm just not a scarf
maker. I kept measuring it every few lace repeats to see if it
was long enough hehe.... I'd really love to make myself nice
scarves as I could wear them nearly 3/4 of the year here in
Finland but I always get about half way finished and then
start measuring because I want it to end! :)

Thanks ya'll :) I don't know that I'll ever be so lucky again to find
such a perfect combination of yarn and stitch pattern. I feel like
this one was a lucky strike hehe... I actually had that yarn for
ages because I just couldn't figure out what to do with it. When
I ran across that lace pattern there was definitely a light bulb that
went *blink* haha

I loved your yarn sooo much I GOOGLED around the internet like mad...trying to find that exact yarn in that exact colorway!

Darn! :hair:

It seems to be sold out! (Temporarily, I hope!)

I found this German website that still seems to have some. There
shipping table is not in English so not 100% sure what sort of
shipping fees they have but given that other parts of the site
are in English they would probably be able to answer email
questions.

I ordered mine from a different German website but they were sold
out as well. This one seems to be offering a sale on the yarn
and now I'm really tempted to make an order myself! hehe...the
evils of online yarn shops *sigh*
