All done Scribbling

Last night I finished the Scribble Lace scarf. What a fast and simple gift, yet how satisfying and impressive looking it is! I will probably have to make one for myself....

Here is a closeup of the texture:



And here you can see that the openness of it works about equally well as a small wrap...



As a big scarf.



Obligatory stats:
Pattern: Loopy & Luscious from Knitty
Yarn: 1 skein Trendsetter Yosemite and 1 skein K1C2 Douceur et Soie
Needles: #13 circular (because I don't have, or couldn't find, the #15s)
Size: about 16" x 55", but variable as the pattern says
Modifications: Amazingly, aside from yarn substitution, none

What's next? Not much on the knitting front. Mostly grading a big fat stack of papers and writing some of my own. Oh, and giving this lovely gift away! I hope the recipient enjoys it :)

Nifty! And pretty! I'm sure the recepient will love it. Good luck with end-of-semester stuff.
