Branching Out Scarf

The knitting goddess is smiling on me today. It is actually cold! That means I am wearing Gingham, my Mountain Colors socks, and the Rowan lace scarf. Whoo hoo. I am grateful for this as I'm reallly tired. My husband was to fly into our local airport at 10 pm last night, but his plane was delayed along the way. That means he missed the last plane in our town. So, it was either go to Houston to pick him up or he was camping out in the airport. We left around 7, as the plane was to land at 9:20. It landed at 11 pm. The child refused to sleep in the car until 12:30. Argh. In bed at 1:30 isn't a fun evening for me--I'm much too old. Enough whining, then.

So now that Gingham is wearable, I have been focusing on my holiday knitting. Here's one of the scarves that I am making for a friend.

This is Branching Out from Knitty. I'm using the Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool and size 5mm needles. I've made a bit of progress since the above pictures, but this isn't a knit I can work on and watch the child or chat. It isn't hard, but I do have to pay attention. And a close up:

I've decided that I really prefer lace to be part of a larger design, perhaps a border on a sweater or something to that effect. Entire lace projects just don't get me going. I think that, ultimately, I'm not frilly enough to be a lace person. But, for friends, I will work through the lace. Just don't expect me to crank out tons of lace shawls. Look for standard sweaters, color work and, I swear, some cables soon!
