Look! I Actually Finished Something!!!

My beautiful Sunrise Scarf! I am very satisfied.

Pattern: Victorian Lace Today
Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, silk laceweight in color Sunrise, purchased at Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe, using .4 of the skein
Needles: Addi Turbo, 3.25 mm
Finished size: 13" by 53"
December 27, 2997 - June 21. 2008

The only alteration I made was to drop the needle size significantly (from 4.5mm) in order to better suit the yarn and my own taste. I could probably have benefited from doing more repeats on each side to compensate ...but I personally like shorter lace scarves.

I have to say that I absolutely love working with this yarn. This is the second lace project I've used Claudia's silk for, and both times I've been thrilled with the result. I love, Love, LOVE the crispness of the blocked piece as well as the sheen and subtlety of the colors. Sooooo yummy.

It's so lovely! The pattern, color, and yarn all go together perfectly.

This is perfectly elegant! I like how the motif to either side of the center is reversed.

It is a gorgeous piece and you will look very stylish wearing it. I'm getting addicted to silk also.
