47: branching out

Woo hoo! I'm finally done!!

Branching out is my first lace scarf. I started in November and crawled along for months. I even joined the knitalong to help me get over my delay. Ultimately, the only thing that helped was beer, episodes of Lost on DVD and a deadline.

Not only is this my first lace project (although I started and finished another lace scarf in the time it took me to finish this guy), this is also the first time I've found it necessary to use a lifeline (good ol' dental floss). That 13th repeat was a bitch: I had to frog it twice and have cried more tears over this scarf than anything I've knit thus far.

Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, the dark purple.
