Lacy Baktus – Finished

The Lacy Baktus was finished on the Fourth of July — fitting since there are lots of “fireworks colors” in this yarn.

Premier Serenity Garden Yarn – Gems
U.S. #5 circular needle
Finished size:  58″ x 12.5″

Serenity Garden Yarn is a really soft, fingering weigh, microfiber.  Not a great deal of stretch to the yarn, but it shows the eyelets well and didn’t need blocking.

The pattern (free download) starts with 4 stitches and my plan was to knit to the end of the first skein, attach the second and decrease to the end.  Something told me to buy a third skein — just in case.  Sure enough, I had to dip into that for the last few rows.

I’m really pleased with this project.  It’s a nice, drapey (is that a word?) scarf  with such fun colors.  And somehow, I managed to get the stripes to mirror on both sides of the triangle.  I think it’s going to be mine!

It’s also long and wide enough to tie around your shoulders and the yarn total (393.5 yds) qualifies.  So this makes Shawl #5 for 10 Shawls in 2010.  I just love it when a project meets several goals at once  🙂

I’ve been neglecting the blog reader this week.  So I’m off to catch up.  Have a great day everyone.  Thanks so much for visiting.  Your comments are so appreciated!
