More Stuff from me. (UPDATED, PAGE 4)
I've been busy lately . Here's some of the fruits of my labor:

First, the candle Flame Shawl. It's kind of been shoved down to the bottom of the WIP pile, but I've recently pulled it out again:



Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, colorway Pewter
Needles: Knit picks Options, 5.5 millimeter needles, 60"


Next, a seamless raglan I've started. I've got the body done and the first sleeve started:



Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, colorways Amber Heather and Cloud.
Needles: Knit Picks Options, 5 millimeter needles, 24", 32", and 16"

And finally, a lace scarf I've started. I love this lace stitch, and it's going to be for my grandmother:



Detail:





Yarn: Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud, colorway Iris Heather
Needles: Knit Picks Options, 5 millimeter needles.

Enjoy!

Thanks, Alpaca Cloud is a great yarn. It's one of the thinner, softer, drapier lace weights, and is perfect for that scarf. I would reccomend it for, say, a scarf or shawl like the Branching Out scarf.

You've got a very lucky grandmother! The lace scarf is really nice, and I love the look of the candle flame shawl.

sThanks! She is lucky considering that the candle flame shawl is also for her, I'm almost done with a throw, and I also have a v-neck cardigan design in the works for her, too.

Here are the instructions for the scarf. I cast on 26 stitches, but any even number plus 2 will work fine.

Knit 2, Yarn over, Purl 2 together. Do that on every row and you get this effect.
