This scarf is called Shallows. I knit it for my mother in law for Christmas. Her favorite color is green, so I think she will like it. The yarn is shades of pemberly from the Plucky Knitter.
This is a great beginner lace project, and the pattern is easy to memorize. So you know what that means.... knitting and reading! I'm so predictable, right? A few of you emailed me and asked how I knit and read at the same time. Well, it has to be easy stitching (knit, purl, or ribbing), and I read on my kindle app in my ipad. I just prop it up in its stand in front of me, and I'm ready to go. Best of both worlds. :)
I definitely recommend soaking and then blocking this project with lace wires. Once it is wet and stretched out, the yarn relaxes and the lacework shows wonderfully. You can definitely block without wires, I just find it to be a lot more effective with this kind of project. Ravelled here.
