I found this easy lace scarf pattern via Ravelry and decided to try to knit it up in time for my mother out-law's Wintertide gift. I was going to use Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool in "mallard", but I couldn't find any in my LYS's. My MOL has a very particular green that is her very favorite color ever, and the closest I could come was Malabrigo Baby Merino Lace in "Verdes". It's very soft, somewhat finer than the stuff called for by the designer, and I really love the variegations. All shimmery with leaflight, appropriate for the pattern.

I'm using Addi Turbo's, which I'm not finding as prohibitively slippery as I have in the past, and I'm using the stretchylicious long tail cast on. I'd knit the first 5 rows when I realized that the lovely loose skein of lace yarn was just begging to be tangled and snarled into a Gordian Knot, so I frogged the baby beginning of the scarf. I'll be trotting down to Village Knitters to see if I can't get the Malabrigo wound into tidy center-pull balls, good'n proper. Still, it looks like an easy pattern, and I have actual hope that I'll finish it in time for the holidays. Yay! I guess for tonight, I'm back on the Rigatoni scarf, with maybe a little homework between rows.
