lace in progress

So this first photo has my class swatch at the top in the tanish brown alpaca, doesn't look so great all bunched up and small, but really it was pretty good - there just isn't much I want to do with it - the bottom, is 2 and a half hours of knitting into my lace scarf with double strands of lace weight cashmere. I figure I can do 7 or 8 repeats of the 72 row pattern (shown on the side) before I need to bind off in lace pattern , which should make it a nice long 6' scarf. I am allowing myself one hour every morning to work on the scarf, since there is still christmas knitting to do. I figure that by the end of December it will be done - it is going pretty fast!

Down here is a close up of the pattern, the first 24 rows plus border and first two corners - next time I will have to get Bill to stretch it for me, so the pattern shows up a bit better . . .

That's all for now!
Have a good week!

I'm so jealous of your lace! It's beautiful.
