Last November, I bought a lovely skein of madtosh fingering in Loop in Islington. And this month, I knitted it up into a lovely lace scarf:
The pattern is free on Knitty: Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery. I really love this yarn colour. It's called vishnu. You can see it better in this photo, which also shows the lace:
I'm very pleased with it, not least because I was able to correct the odd mistake by dropping down and using a crochet hook. I've come a long way, baby! A couple of years ago, I would never have been able to do that.
I was going to give it away as a christmas present, but now I'm not sure I can bear to... I'll see what else I knit between now and the Autumn!
