I’ve been busily knitting on my Philly Knitter’s Secret Pal gift for the past week. Secret projects = poor blog content so I’ve been AWOL. I’m happy to report I finished the gift though.
I am really happy with the way this turned out! Although the picture would have you think otherwise, all the edges do V out in a nice pattern.
Pattern – Heartstrings Hanging Vines Scarf with 2 center panel repeats (73 stitches total). I purchased the pattern at Elann.
Yarn – Schaefer Anne, less than 1 hank
Needles – Addi Natura 4.5 mm (US #7)
Finished Measurements – 20″x60″. It should really be longer and a bit narrower but that’s as long as my blocking board goes. I’m going to have to either get blocking wires or an inexpensive rug runner if I plan to make more of these.
Comments – The yarn was a dream to work with. It didn’t split and even behaved well on the K3tog’s. Blocking took all of a couple hours. I washed it with Eucalan (the water did get pink but no noticeable color was lost), pinned it on my blocking board and turned on the ceiling fan.
As I mentioned above, I will look into buying blocking wires if I get the lace knitting bug. And since I have 3 more hanks of Anne in my stash I think there’s a good chance I’ll be making more lace scarves!
