Dayflower lace scarf

I'm into these skinny lace scarves. They are great for using up single skeins in my stash and I'm learning a great deal on what fibers work for what projects. This was knit in Jaeger Trinity, a silk/cotton/polyamide blend that I've had in my stash for years. It's OK, but I think the scarf would have blocked much better in a wool blend or at least something with a little loft.

I'm not sure if what it needed was loft or just something with a bit more "give"

You're right, there is no stretch what-so-ever in that yarn. It gives the lace an anemic look.

I don't know about the tactile aspect, but visually it has an appealing aquatic look, like a frond of seaweed swaying in the tide.

Hmmmm....interesting. I think it is a good way to get to know the various yarns before investing time in a bigger project. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

This is the first time I've seen this pattern actually used. Thanks.

It always caught my eye in Walker's Treasury. I've considered using it for a window curtain in linen or cotton... so little time to knit everything we want to...

It would make a beautiful window panel. To bad I have to work for a living instead of knit all day.
