Finished Liesel Scarf

After seeing Asbjorn's wonderful work on the Liesel scarf, I decided to try my hand at it. It took me 14 days to finish it, and I learned my attention span is about 12 days. I finished it up this evening. This one is merino wool. Well really it's about 99.8% merino wool and 0.2% Boston Terrier.

Overall I'm happy with it. I think I will give it to a classmate.

If she doesn't exhibit appropriate gratitude behaviours (groveling, squeeing and offers to bear children) you are perfectly justified in strangling the poor creature. And you'll have a handy scarf with which to perform the grisly task.

P.S. Be sure to wear gloves.

Looks really good to me. Very good definition on the leaves.

Thanks!

What a beautiful scarf. Is there a free pattern for this floating around? Or is it in a book? I have never done lace work before. But, it looks like this scarf could be enough inspiration to try it. Oh, and I agree it looks wonderful in natural white.

It is free and a link has been posted. This was my first lace project. It's pretty easy to work, but it's challenging enough to keep you interested for a while. I was amazed at home much I had to stretch it in blocking though to get it to look the way I wanted it to.

Yay, a Liesel scarf. This pattern is near and dear to me and yours looks great. I really like the pristine white. I also love the 0.2% Boston Terrier. I usually work with a Lab mix and the occasional black cat.

Very beautiful in white. Excellent job.

My knitting usually has a bit of white, grey or black fur from one cat or orange fur from the other.

Peace,
