Another lacy scarf from Knitspot.
This one is the Butternut Scarf, knitted in a Colourmart laceweight yarn.
76 days on the needles, but only 7 active days knitting on it. The pattern knits up very quickly, with a nice rhythm. Only one major goof, at the half way point, when I had to rip 11 rows out. I had a lifeline in, thankfully.
Knitted as given, apart from upping the needles one size.
Lovely pattern. Lovely yarn.
â€œA kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluousâ€
This scarf is every bit as delicate as a kiss,Â I think.
“Ingrid” – because this piece of knitting is for comfort in the same way that an old Ingrid Bergman B&W 3 hankie movie is for comfort on a dreary winter afternoon. I donâ€™t have a TV to watch, but I do have lace to knit.

Gone to a better home – already!
IÂ had the devil of a job photographing this scarf – it is a difficult shade to capture consistently at the best of times but the added problem of low light levels made it all the more difficult. Oh – and guess what I noticed when I blocked it? Yep.
