Colors!!!

 Here are my Wips for the week. The Lacy entrelac scarf is growing. One of the balls of yarn I bought for this project was very dark and the other one is more colorful even though they were the same dye lot. If I ever use this yarn again I will keep that in mind. Anyway I got tired of the ball of yarn with all the very dark shades and just cut it off and attached the other ball. I kind of wish I had started with the more colorful ball. My progress on this seems to be doing one lacy square a day. So that would equal one whole pattern sequence a day.

This week I did some cleaning up and took down my sewing machine and set up my knitting machine. I have been wanting to make this scarf for a while and after I started it and saw all the bright pretty colors I think I will have to make more. The pattern is mine. It's a simple lacy scarf pattern for the knitting machine. It can also be hand knit by following the chart. So fun! BTW this picture is about 2 hours or so of knitting. The yarn is Bernat Mosaic.

Your machine knit scarf looks amazing! I used to have a knitting machine, but I only knit stockinet stitch sweaters with it.
