Lacy Alpaca Scarf

Remember way back when I began a long-promised scarf for my friend Sarah? Well, I finally got it blocked the other day and it turned out pretty nicely if I do say so myself.

It did take me frogging it once for me to like the finished product. I initially had been knitting it single-stranded on size 6 needles. But it was turning out a little bit too dense for my taste so I started it over with the yarn double-stranded on size 10 needles. Much better!

I ended up using 6 skeins of Andean Treasure in Hot Rod Heather, which is 100% Alpaca. I LOVE the softness of this yarn and it's so warm. Sarah will be back in Skagway in just a couple days...hope she likes her scarf that she's waited on for about three year!

  1. It looks gorgeous, and I'm sure she'll love it!

    And you did get it done. I once started a baby blanket when a friend was pregnant with her first child and finally finished it after the birth of her third child. Definitely my longest outstanding project. ;)
