I Branched Out

Branching Out
It is probably one of the prettiest and simplest lace things I have ever knitted. I used a skein of cream alpaca that I had spun a little while back (reember the flicking accidents?). I love how the uneven spinning is hidden once the yarn is knit up. It's a gorgeous scarf, even if I do say so myself.

Okay, so that's not very clear. Try this:

I wasn't sure I liked it in cream. I thought a rosemary green colour would suit its leafy design and name.

It's a little clearer against a red towel

Like it? So do I!

Bendigo Mohair
I know, I know, I am not meant to be buying any more yarn. BUT IT WAS ON SALE!

Okay this is what I ended up with:

I liked the cardigan/jacket thing and thought it would be handy since I don't have a cardigan right now. The question remains, when will I find time to knit it?

I also bought one ball of this:

Yes, Twiggyann this is for your hooded scarf. tell me now if you hate the colour. There is still time to change! I will probably start working on it this weekend, if I have time.

Only a few more weeks of uni to go. Also means that I only have a few more weeks till the assignments are due. Uh oh!

What a pretty green! I love it! I can't wait. Thanks!
I Love Branching Out - nice and easy to knit and yours look lovely. SP
V.V. pretty! Congratulations.
*whispers* it's my birthday in a couple of months! Hint hint!

Nah, just jokes.

Is the mohair good? Moogi was considering getting some from the same sale but didn't. I wonder if it's still available.
It's perfect, one of those knits that takes a little effort but gives a big impact.
I so love your Branched Out!! It is lovely in both colors! I will also begin it in a few days...I am going for the 'non-green' and using KnitPicks Merino Syle in hollyberry!! LOL, I already have the green for the Backyard Leaves scarf from "Scarf Style" that is spoken for...lol! But, as I said, it's lovely in any color, I've seen it in many.
The scarves are great but I nearly fell off my seat when I saw the picture of the woman with a big woolly head as I scrolled down! LOL! (the Bendi mohair and the cardi from your 18 Oct post.)
It's so nice to see this scarf as it grew - and thank you once again for it; it's so beautiful I'm going to ask you where you got the pattern for this as well. You're inspiring me to learn more about lace knitting. :)
