Two down, one to go....

Name: Branching Out from Knitty
Yarn: Knit 1 Crochet Too Douceur et Soie in #8633 Cornflower
Started: 6/8/05 Finished: 6/26/05
What I Learned: My first real lace project, use a lifeline
Comments: I made this as a gift for a special someone, hence the blue color choice (y'all know I'm more of a pink/green girl). I think this is a great first lace project. It eases you gradually into following a chart and using reeeaaallly thin yarn. Although, I must admit, I cheated and used the written out version. I don't like to follow charts if I can get away with it. The Douceur et Soie yarn is so soft, it should be a sin. My only complain would be, and this isn't the yarn's fault, that it stuck to my sweaty hands. Now, I just have one project on the needles. My mind is at peace.

Beautiful! The scarf seems much longer than other versions that I've seen. Your daughter is cute, too.

Hey Amy, I did get color 8631 of the Pleasure! When you said you have 2 balls calling your name, did you mean you're thinking about buying them? 'Cause my sweater calls for 8 balls and I have 10, I would be happy to donate my other 2 balls to you! Only problem is I'd want to wait until after I finish the sweater to make sure the yarn requirements are accurate... but if you don't mind waiting, just let me know. :)
