One Skein Scarf
I finished my little scarf (scarflette?) in a simple lace pattern. The pattern is a slightly adapted from One Skein Wonders--they have you knitting on both sides, thus creating a garter stitch lace which is the same on both sides. But garter stitch annoys me because the needle doesn't slide into the stitch as easily, so I purled on the back. That makes it not the same on both sides, but I kind of like it that way anyway. Alpaca seems soft, but it does have a bit of itchiness to it, on my skin. But in any case, I am pleased with this little experiment. If I'd had 2 skeins, I would have kept going, but I got just one in an online trade.
