Pattern: Elizabeth I: Town and Country by JoLene Treace
Yarn: Knitpicks Gloss Lace in the Aegean colorway
Needles: Size 2 1/2 circular
I started the Town and Country scarf back on August 1, 2008. It's been a great do a pattern repeat whenever I feel like it project.
This is my first lace weight project, and it certainly did take a long time. There were times that the skein never seemed to shrink in size, especially when I was doing the Undulating Waves scarf at the same time. (Lace weight vs. worsted weight. Not a pretty picture.) Still, I did enjoy working on it, and would like to do the other two (more difficult) patterns in the Elizabeth I set.
I enjoyed the Knitpicks Gloss Lace. It has a really nice feel to it, and the sheen from the silk is very pretty. I definitely love this color blue, and can see myself wearing this, even though I'm not actually a scarf person. I guess I've just been waiting for the right scarves.
