I finished a new scarf for myself. Lyn gifted me with two skeins of Diakeito because she knows I enjoy long color runs in a yarn. I usually use such things to make some of Lucy Neatby's Triangles, but I've been wanting to do a little more lace. This was knitted on #9 needles in the Old Shale pattern, also known commonly as Feather and Fan. Dead simple, and it makes me eager to try other simple lace patterns. I love the resulting scarf. Lacy enough to look elegantly elaborate, but dense enough to really be warm!
I'm almost done with my first elaborate cable pattern (from Viking Patterns for Knitting by Lavold), and although I made mistakes I love how it turned out too. I'll post on that tomorrow.
