Branching Out

I'm branching out into lace. I just joined the Branching Out KAL. I've been looking at this pattern since I discovered Knitty a few months ago. The cryptic pattern just terrified me and the chart did me no good. It doesn't help that I rarely wear scarves (even in the dead of winter). This will be a gift to my MIL. I had my hubby pick out the yarn for this project (it's his Mom after all). It will be the red Patons Merino pictured in the previous post.

I'm looking forward to learning something new with this project. I will cast on tonight. Send good knitting vibes!

Good Luck! I have been eyeing that pattern myself. Lace is still a bit scary to me, I am more a cable girl...let us know how the pattern goes.
