Branching OutWe I found a pattern to match my wristwarmers...Branching Out. This will be my 2nd time with this pattern. The first time I made this scarf I used Misti alpaca lw. It was my first lace anything...it took over a year to finish. Wow I'm such a different knitter now. I can knit this without even looking at the chart or pattern. I'm using Patons SWS like the wristwarms. I just love this yarn!!!

My boyfriend and so Highland wool

I spun up some of that blue,green & black coop and plyed it with some black highland wool I had. I don't know what weight of how much yet, some's on the bobbin still. When I have it all off and washed I'll let you know. I'm thinking shawl or a couple pairs of sock....hmmm

Well as of yesterday I finished my 1st socktopia sock, I'll post pics after they are done. I've also been working on Icarus. I have 2 repeat of chart 1 done.
