Purple Rainbows.....


I hereby dub this scarf the purple rainbow....

It's my first finished lace piece (I have a different scarf I'm working on for myself that is set aside). I'm rather proud of it. Every 6th row, you wrap the yarn around the needle 4 x and pull it through, then in the next row, you pull those out so that they are long, criss-cross 4 over 4, and then knit them into place.... I was thinking, when I cast on, that I wanted it to be loose and flowing, so I did a long tail cast-on, but when I bound off, one side was very structured, while the cast-on side was very loose, giving it a rainbow arch. Shouldn't be a big deal since it's draped over the neck, anyway! Living and learning.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Thanks Marie....

This one's not for me though....continuation of Christmas knitting. After a while, when the memories of it have faded a bit, I might dare to make one for me!!!
