I'm working on lace again, though it's simple lace. Wasn't really planning to but typically, i was in a yarn shop and saw something I really liked, which seemed to scream the name of a good friend in Seattle, and since I'm visiting in October, what better excuse to buy yarn? I also love doing lace because it's "instant gratification." I.e. because it's mostly air, you get a lot of area for the time spent. As long as you don't screw up and spend several hours trying to correct it.
I'm making the Pecan Grove Scarf. I'm surprised more people haven't knit it; it's a nice repeating pattern, and maybe second only to the "Susan Scarf" in terms of ease, making it an excellent choice for anyone wanting to start with lace. The pattern is free on Ravelry. The original pattern calls for laceweight but I'm using a thicker yarn (Yarn Art Magic, Colorway 549), because I would like it to be functional as well. :)
I'll add another photo when it's done and blocked.
I'll be in Seattle for about 2 weeks starting Oct 11. I'll also be in N. Arkansas in late October, and NY/VA for around a week too but I'll be pretty busy there.
