i can't figure out how to re-size the pics very well, but here is my first attempt at a lace pattern. it was made with mountain colors 4/8 (1.5 skeins). it was also my first try at blocking - wow was that hard.

i think it turned out pretty good. i made it for my best friend for xmas and she loved it. she shows it to everybody she meets. i guess i know who i'm knitting more stuff for in the future.

let me know what you all think - since this is my first time trying lace.:muah:

OMGoodness ... I think this may be one of the prettiest patterns I've seen!! I just went to Brooke's site and looked at all the pics and saved the pattern. I'm working on an Orca Tails scarf now, but this will definitely be my next scarf pattern I try! Yours turned out beautiful!!! Great job on the lace!

Wow, that is a gorgeous scarf! You chose the perfect yarn for it -- I made mine with the Twizzle in the same colorway, and I think the 4/8 would have been better. It's a great project for learning lace work, and your's is just perfect!

It looks great! My first try at lace was also the Column of Leaves scarf and was also gifted!

:teehee: , after reading Wanda's post about looking at the pics on Brooke's site, I couldn't rememeber if I sent in a picture so I figured I'd look. I was a little suprised to see my goofy little youtube video on there. At least it's getting good use! :oops:

Gosh o mighty but I love this scarf! I love green, I love sheen, and I love the pattern! Way to go!!! :thumbsup:

I tried Column of Leaves several months ago. It kicked my butt. I just couldn't get the pattern down...so moved onto Branching Out scarf. Sigh.

Column of Leaves is still on my QUEUE! Yours is inspiring!

I love this pattern! It's down to this pattern and a couple of others for some Malabrigo I purchased recently.
