While I wait for my yarn to arrive...


...I am working on a Scarf for Beatrix, which is a knit along through the Belle of the Ball Podcast.

I've made progress on this since this picture was taken, but I still have well over half to go, so it's not zooming by. Still, it is an easy lace project and is turning out to be quite pretty.

I got this cone of mystery yarn from someone in the local library knitting circle I used to attend pre-baby. She didn't like it, apparently. I was uncertain about using it. I wasn't sure how the variation in color would work with the lace pattern, but I'm pretty pleased with it, so far. I originally started the project with a black fingering weight wool yarn, but I soon abandoned it. I couldn't see the pattern at all with the dark color, plus, it was a hot day and I couldn't stand the feel of wool on my hands.

I'm looking forward to seeing this project completed, but I'll probably work on it in between some other projects. Don't know yet if I'll keep it or give it away as a gift. We'll see...
