Branching Out Scarf

Last night I started on the Branching Out Scarf by Susan Lawrence with the Filatura DiCrossa Multicolor yarn in the Green/Blue/Purple/Pink/Yellow colorway. The photo below is after completing the first 20 rows. The yarn is soft and fluffy and probably not something I should have used for a first lace project. I did have to frog it a few times as I just could not get the stitch count right and kept ending up with too many or too few stitches.

Note to self: Never try to knit by candlelight ...

I purchased a purple skein of the same yarn to make the same scarf for my sister, Jessica. She wanted the green one since there was purple in it but I'd already claimed it and Unraveled Sheep only had one skein of each. I'd love to get hold of another skein of the green to make the Silk Sleeves in the One Skein book by Leigh Radford.

While doing some sorting through stuff the other day, I found a purse crochet project I'd started back in June of 2007. I did most of it while on a plane to Seattle and over the weekend there while at a friend's wedding. I'm almost finished with the front of the purse and the back is almost identical and while the pattern called for size 10 crochet thread, I'm using size 20.

The purse pattern is from Annie's Attic # 87Z30, The International Collection of Crochet Patterns.

(Sigh) The photo isn't very good but I never seem to be able to get a good photo of light/white yarns, even when not using a flash.
