A project for me to keep!

Some of you may have seen a previous post about my graduation present to myself...

This skein of Tilli Tomas Rock Star. The color is Glazed Ginger.

I searched for a pattern and found this (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/TheBlackPurl/lace-scarf) picture on ravelry.

So, I ordered the book that had the pattern...this scarf turned out to be quite expensive!

It took me about four days...a very easy pattern! I used size 6 needles...same as the pattern recommended.

Here's the finished product. Please forgive me for some of the pictures' poor quality. Brown is difficult to photograph.

As a final note, I think that everyone should indulge in this yarn. It was fabulous to knit with...so soft! And it feels great around my neck. I am so glad I splurged.

Thank you for looking.

Yes, you DEFINITELY need this kind of treat! Congratulations on your own graduation! Feels great, eh?!

Thank you, all, for such generous comments. It's very rewarding to finish something that actually looks nice and that I'll be proud to wear out.

What Scout said!

Thanks for the heads up on the scarf and yarn, I need to make something for my brother's girlfriend, who is rather high maintenence. :)

I hope you're finding LOTS of time to sit and knit, not worrying about school. You more than deserve a break.

Oh yeah, this is definitely worthy of someone on the upper end of the maintenance scale. :teehee:

I felt so pretty when I tried it on.

Oh, and yes, I am knitting A LOT! My kids are getting tired of not having dinner, so I'm going to have to set some rules for myself now. Enough indulgence! :wink:

Here's a couple of other pictures...I just found them when going through my pictures on Flickr.

Here's a close-up before blocking. You can't really see the yo's, but you get a better idea of what the stitches look like.

ArtLady, you make me chuckle.

I can't believe you haven't used this yarn before! Wow!

The yarn store where I got this had several beautiful colors. It was difficult to decide which one to get. The red is absolutely stunning. I chose the brown because it will go with almost everything.
