30 Days of Knitting Questions – Day 2

Continuing my posts from the tumblr account Crafts and Such that has a list of 30 knitting questions; one for each day.

Day 2: What is currently on your needles?

I’m working on a lace scarf that I am absolutely in love with.  I’m in love with the yarn more than anything.  This is definitely one I’m keeping for myself.  I started it while I was on vacation down in FL but decided to finish my socks first after I was back home.  The scarf pattern is on Ravelry and the yarn is Knit Pick’s Shimmer Lace –  Bayou.  Here’s a WIP photo from a few days ago.

I keep thinking it looks like peacock feathers more than anything.  Especially with the larger YO holes.  I’ll have to see how it looks once it’s blocked and the pattern is really visible.

Bonus – Sneak Preview Infinity Scarf WIP

Here’s a bonus – two posts in the same day =)

The main thing I am working on right now is an infinity scarf for my sister, the one in the Chicago area not FL.  Since I had my camera out for the Snowflake Hat I decided to take a few extra pics so my sister could see her scarf progress (Anyone who doesn’t knit – the green circles are stitch counters so I can keep track of the pattern. They are not part of the scarf):

The pattern is for the Ambigram Scarf on Ravelry.  I’m about 30% done. The only modification I’ve made is to use smaller beads and a slightly larger gauge.  The beads were a last minute idea and I didn’t want to go too over board with the larger beads.  Plus I already had the 11/0 white seed beads.

I’m liking the pattern and this is my first time using beads as well.  My biggest concern at this point is that the scarf has too much brown in the color.  It’s one of those colors that seem to change depending on what it’s next to. Hopefully it will work with the outfit my sister has planned.
