I made it to the halfway point on my ISE pal's lace scarf. You can't really see the colors to well in this photo.
I took this photo outside in the sun so you could see the purple shades better. I really like this yarn. I shall have to buy more....

This is my first "ruffle" scarf (please excuse the crappy picture). It was really fun to knit. I believe that pattern came from a Creative Knitting magazine, though I'm not sure which one. I bought 2 skeins of this yarn when I went on a Knitting Retreat last Nov. It's Malabrigo Worsted, the color is Lettuce. This scarf didn't even use 1 full skein. When I saw the pattern I thought it looked like lettuce leaves, then I remembered I had yarn that was called Lettuce....and so it was meant to be.
I love this scarf! I used Misti Alpaca Chunky and #13 needles. The pattern is free on their website. You only need one skein, unless you want to make it really long. This yarn is so soft. I have another skein in fushia. I just may have to make one more.

Yesterday when I got home from work this was waiting for me.......
I ordered these from Ebay. Mountain Colors Bearfoot, Rosehip on the right and Northern Lights on the left. These are destined to become Tiger Eye Lace Scarves.
I got these little beauties from my LYS, Knit Happens. The red is Kaalund Expressions, the color is called Poinsettia. This will be a shawl for my Aunt. The blue is more Schaefer Yarn Anne. Not sure what this will be yet. Probably a shawl. There's 560yds in this skein!
Here's a picture of my pal's scarf. I'm using Schaefer Yarn's Anne. My pal likes purple and this is verigated purple. The pattern is the Lace Scarf from Nancie Wiseman's "Knitted Scarves, Shawls and Stoles".
Here's what it looked like a couple of days ago.

I will definitely be making this shawl again. The next one will be larger. I made this shawl according to the pattern, but will make the 19 reps of the budding lace chart 2 next time.

I received an email from my scarf pal this morning! I can't wait to see what she comes up with for me. I've also been chatting with the pal I'm making a scarf for...going to the LYS during lunch today to get the yarn and will hopefully start this evening...
