Egeria, I posted a pic of my scarf in progress in the patterns central forum.
http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/for...opic.php?t=279
The finished scarf is not super long as I only had two balls of the alpaca brush....but long enough for me as I'm one of the vertically challenged.
It's not super lacey by any stretch but pretty all the same.

My first experience with lace knitting came about from my best friend suggesting a lace scarf pattern for our knitalong. Now, bear in mind I'd never followed a pattern for anything, much less lace! Once I got the hang of frogging back to a mistake things moved along fairly smoothly and the finished scarf was lovely.
You can find the pattern at this site. http://www.ozyarn.com/ Look under free patterns and it's the Alpaca Lace Scarf. I'm including a pic of it finished....the 'head' was cropped to protect the innocent.

I must be hooked on lace knitting as I just cast-on for Lily Chin's 'Charlotte's Easy Lace Shawl' pattern, using a mohair yarn I bought last Fall.

And I do so agree...so much to knit, so little time!

Wow that is really beautiful! That's exactly the sort of thing I'd love to do! I'll have to search for some patterns like that. Or check out my bookstores!
