Silk Lace Scarf

Pattern Notes
Lace Scarf from Debbie Bliss Pure Silk

Yarn: 2 skeins Debbie Bliss Pure Silk (100%)
Needles: US 6 DPs
Finished Length: about 92"

I made this scarf for myself because I just liked the pattern and wanted to try this yarn. It pills a lot and doesn't look new by the time it's done being knitted, but I like it anyway. The scarf is very long because I knit until the end of the 2nd skein. I have to wrap it around my neck three times for it to fall to the length I like. It is a more decorative than cold weather scarf, but it's nice either way and soft around my neck. It tooks several months to make, but only because it was my "travel" project, which basically means it was my project for in the car (waiting at the gas station, in line at the bank, etc).

I only used DPs cause they are small enough to fit in my travel bag.

After seeing you work on the scarf for so long, it's nice to finallly see it finished. It looks great!
