Two posts ago I mentioned that I was just dying to jump into some new projects . . . well, I just couldn't wait any longer (even though nothing that's really close to being finished is actually finished yet!), so I picked the smallest of the projects and whipped this little scarf out.
I used two skeins of Trendsetter Kashmir on size 9 needles and the leaf lace stitch pattern from the lace pullover from Luxury Knitting. I knit that sweater for the book so that lace pattern will forever be etched into my memory. I was able to finish this scarf in just a few hours, and even wore it today! I love it. Lavender is a color I don't usually wear but I got it into my head to knit a leaf lace scarf in lavender and this yarn is so soft and luxurious, I just had to do it. And now that it's finally cold outside (it was FREEZING this morning!! I can't believe it's almost December, when did that happen!?!?), I can wear it with my new hat. Not that they match at all, but I'm too disorganized to match my hats and scarves anyway, I always lose one piece out of a matching set (especially gloves).

Thank you to everyone on your comments about the shawl. I'll post any other info I get as I get it. I'll be going to the show on one of the last days before it closes, after I get back from England. I can't wait to see all other entries!
I likey! So purty!
Oh my gosh! That’s a beautiful scarf.
A few hours? I can do about 20 rows in a few hours! LOL!
What a gorgeous scarf! As much as I hate the cold, I just love making beautiful scarves.

Wow, really beautiful! I’m a huge fan of lavender, so I’m especially biased too. Great work!
