Chasing Butterflies

I'm just fluttering between projects and getting absolutely nothing noticeable done. I KNOW I am moving along, but you wouldn't notice it in progress pictures! So in celebration of my flitting about, I decided to finish an aptly named project that I started last spring. 2 lace panels of the the Chasing Butterflies Scarf have been staring at me for months - all they needed was grafting at the neck and blocking....TAH DAH!!

Chasing Butterflies

I love Seamen's scarves - the ribbing fits so nicely around the neck. On this scarf each panel is worked from the bottom up, ending with 4X4 ribbing which is grafted at the back neck. The lace pattern is a 6 row repeat that is worked on both sides (no resting purl row) - she has nice charts AND written instructions.

Pattern: Chasing Butterflies by Mary Dominski from A Week in the Life of a Knitter's Cat.
Yarn: 1 skein Peruvian Nights Superfine Alpaca from Joslyn's Fiber Farm.
Size: 8"X50" (each lace panel is 18" and the neck ribbing is 14")
Needles: 3.25mm


See the butterflies?

Other decisions made...I will make Denmark socks (Nancy Bush - KOTR) for October Sockdown and Fall Cable KAL, but am still waiting for clue 4 on the Mystery Socks before I get going on these. I also just started (another fun new cast on) the Aran Watch Cap (Charlene Schurch - Hats On).

and I'm putting the red quilt top together...
