I'm impressed that you were undaunted by such an intricate looking pattern stitch. I also agree with picked a perfectly elegant color for the scarf.

Another who thumbs up on the colour. Looks VERY good for a thrid project , ever, and lace at that!

In response to the request for details ...

The yarn is Adrienne Vittadini "Trina" made in Italy. It is 55% Merino Wool, 35% Microfiber, 10% Cashmere. It is very soft and just a little heavier than it looks. There is no name to indicate the color, but the color number is 116. The label reads "50 grams = approx. 71 yards." (perhaps someone could tell me what all that means). I used US size 10 needles and a feather and fan pattern.

It took about 4 balls of yarn for the project and is 5 feet long.
