One of our members, Lorrie, has kindly posted a free pattern for a very pretty Fishtail Lace Scarf she has designed. Her pattern uses 3 balls of Blue Sky Alpaca Sport (120yd / 2oz.) and is knitted on US Size 4 (3.5mm) needles at a gauge of 6 st/inch. The finished scarf is 7″ wide by 56″ long. The pattern is lovely, and a great beginner project. You could substitute any yarn that fits the specifications, or if you’re feeling adventuresome, try it in something completely different.

Hey, Guess What?
My Tina Shawl still looks like a crumpled rag. A slightly larger crumpled rag, but a crumpled rag nonetheless.
But look — she does impressions! Here she is being a Sea Anemone:
But I’m making progress. I’m still projecting that I’ll be starting the edging this weekend.
So of course I’m thinking about what to make next. Should I do an easy lace shawl or scarf as a “breather” or dive right into another more difficult design?
Submitted for your consideration:
On the easier side, I have the Fiber Trends Leaf Lace Shawl pattern.
And the Fiber Trends Flower Basket Shawl pattern.
And on the harder side, I have the Fiddlesticks Knitting Peacock Feathers Shawl pattern.
And the Inky Dinky Spider Stole pattern, also from Fiddlesticks Knitting.
And finally, Hazel Carter’s Song of Hiawatha Stole pattern.
I’ve got appropriate yarns for all of these.
I wonder what Lucy’s favorite is?
She’s too busy channel-surfing to tell me.
