Tada!: It’s going to be a cold December

Pattern: Branching Out by Susan Lawrence. (on Ravelry)
Source: Knitty
Yarn: Rowan Rowanspun DK
Needles: US 8 straights
Date started (and completed): November 2007 (I don’t remember the exact dates …)

I really really really love this yarn. It just breaks my heart that it was discontinued. I mean, it did break easily, but that was the only flaw I could see. I love the look of it – like the yarn itself was pre-felted. You can see how rustic and lovely it makes the lace look. It was squooshy and subtly heathered and practically perfect in every way.

The pattern was lovely, but you probably already know that because everyone has made this scarf. Right now, Ravelry says that there are 2,263 projects, and it is in 1,964 knitters’ queues. It’s one of those Knitty staples, like Fetching or Dashing. But is a dandy for your first lace project, I’ll give it that.
