Lacy entrelac scarf

I made this scarf from brown sheep wool which I bought at a thrift store. I don't work with wool much, though I love it, so I wanted to do something a bit out of the ordinary. The stitch down the center is called "lacy entrelac" by this old stitch dictionary that I have. I added the moss borders and edgings. I'm sorry for the poor contrast in the pic, but I was in a hurry and didn't have time for do-overs. I really don't think the design turned out all that well, but I did learn a great deal by doing it.

It looks fabulous. I'm waiting for time to get my entrelac out again!

I, for one, think it's beautiful.  I especially like the way you braided the fringe.
