Lacy Scarf

I've been working on the lacy scarf for about a week and finished it last night. The yarn I used is Noro Silk Garden, in the reds colorway. This yarn was purchased at Bette Bornside in New Orleans. Bette Bornside is located in the Faubourg Marigny, which is very close to the French Quarter. A word of caution though, I advise being cautious anywhere you go, but be extra careful here. I'm not saying this is a bad neighborhood, I'm just saying to be extra careful if you decide to visit this shop. This shop also sells yarn and supplies by mail order also if you would like to shop that way. The thing about the shop's website that I think could be improved is the lack of pictures. There are written descriptions, but no pictures, which makes it sort of hard to really get a feel for what the color will look like. It's just my opinion.
The scarf is a pretty simple pattern. It is a six row repeat, and every other row is just the purl stitch across. It is number 22 in the magazine. I found many patterns in this magazine that I would like to make, hopefully one day I will have time to make some of them. I used a size 9 1/2 circular needle, with two skeins of yarn.

Yum! I love the colourway! I have yet to use Noro Silk Garden but I do so love Noro.

Thanks for complimenting my Drops Jacket on my blog!
