Only Thing to Do on a Windy Night!

Ideas taking shape!

Scarf starting to take shape

Scarf starting to take shape

The lace pattern scarf is starting to take shape now and my time spent charting out the tapering off pattern is paying off! I’ll have to write it out again in slightly more legible form for later patterns, but I’m very happy with how this is looking and after blocking the change from pattern to stockinette stitch should become more subtle.
