(Almost) FO - Lace Scarf
"Liesel" on Ravelry:
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/liesel

My first real lace project wherein I made zero mistakes from start to finish (well, I made mistakes, but fixed them as I went along). Also my first time blocking (it's not perfect, I know...).

The wait for it to dry thoroughly is a long one indeed.

Thanks! I'm really happy with! The yarn was just something I got so I could get free shipping with my Hiya Hiya sets. I didn't much attention but it turns out it's 50/50 merino/silk with that lovely variegated blue.

Oh it's beautiful, Zoe! I love the Liesel scarf pattern! I just knit a Liesel a few months ago! Yours is just wonderful! Way to go!

Absolutely fantastic. I am getting an 'itch' to try something similar myself. Beautiful scarf.

Thank you!

What's stopping you? Contrary to the pattern instructions, I didn't find that it was easy to memorize the pattern. I consulted it at every single row. Also, if you do this scarf (or something similar), count your stitches after every single row that's not just a plain knit/purl. It'll save you much trouble!

How did you block that? I'm making a scarf and can't imagine how I would block anything that long.

I love it also. Funny thing is, it's my next project.

As far as blocking it, I'd use my queen size bed, that way, the dog won't take a nap on it.
