Cloud Scarf (and new morning knitting)

Cloud Scarf

The Cloud Scarf was the most pleasurable morning knitting project I have had in a long time. It is knit from one end to the other with no finishing and is a simple 12 row repeat. The lace pattern is written out, so if you are a chart lover ( either way is fine with me), you won't be happy. The finished scarf is so pretty and soft and I am just thrilled that I managed to finish without spilling any coffee on it!!

Pattern: Cloud Scarf by Lucy Neatby
Size: 10.5" X 54"
Yarn: 1 skein Knit Picks Bare Merino Wool fingering weight (with 24 g left over)
Needles: US 6 (Denise 4.2 mm)

I think it would be gorgeous in lace weight yarn....

I finished this scarf on the exact day that the Mystery Stole 3 KAL began so the timing was perfect and a new morning knitting project was born. The pace is just right for me and I love that there is a limit as to how much you can do....keeps me in check! I am using JaegerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk in "indigo" (a beautiful deep midnight blue with that elegant silk luster) on US 4 (3.5mm) needles - no beads.

I've played with the chart to make is easier and quicker for me....taking a few minutes to write in the # for the upcoming knit stitches (no stopping to count while knitting) and coloring right and left slanting decreases.

My sister (Carol) and niece (Dana) have returned to Colorado - We had a great time together! Here they are at Kimball Farm attempting to down a whole Kimball's Special (those from MA know how daunting this task is!)
