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