Knitting Lace Scarf

Hello, hello everyone!

Finally I can find some time to blog and have something to share with you after a long break... I just finished a scarf during my Holiday of Dragon New Year. This is the first time I tried lace knitting, but this scarf turned out so beautiful in lavender and so soft! I just love, love, love it!!! I'm sure the photos did not treat it well!

I selected a pattern in my knitting book to make the scarf, called a "Cell Stitch". It's a simple combination between YO and K2TOG, but with this special type of yarn, it came out much over my expectation! 

My friend Donna sent this yarn to me a while ago, she loves lavender color and generously shared it with me. It ruffles itself, and is very soft, especially it creates an amazing stretch for the scarf!!! I believe it made the scarf more special beside the stitches! Thank you, thank you so much my friend for giving me a great opportunity to experience this wonderful yarn, and in turn, this one will be another gift to be sent back to California! I'm more than happy with that!

I made a crochet chain for the edgings instead of adding fringe or tassel, as this kind of yarn unravels easily when cut in to a short piece, and the second reason is just to save yarn for the scarf body! :)

This scarf is really glamorous to me, so I hope she will love it and enjoy it as much as I do! 
Thank you ever so much for taking the time to visit my blog and your comments are always most appreciated! Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!!!

Best wishes, ♥

Oh my goodness, my sweet friend! This is so beautiful and I cannot believe you will be gifting this back to me! It is so beautiful in the photo, but I know when I see it in person, holding in my hands and seeing though my own eyes it will be overwhelming! No one has ever made me a scarf just for me. Well, except me, of course! he he he!

You have made me so happy, dear one! You are so generous and I am so humbled by your act of kindness. I know how hard you have been working this past year with the company move, your father's illness and you caring for him, so taking precious time and making something for me, well - I will wear it proudly and treasure it always!

May God continue showering you with blessings and keep his Angels around you my sweet friend!!

With much love,
Donna

Love the scarf, interesting colors. I've used that pattern recently one a scarf for DD, green one posted on my blog; though it looked very different. Maybe because my yarn was bulky? I've seen that pattern often, but never heard it called cell stitch. The old English stitch was called Fagot Stitch, though you don't see that much now either with folks being PC, or trying to be. I've heard it called easy lace too, I think. Whatever it's called, it's a nice stitch.
