fo - column of leaves scarf
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.
