Nessie Knit

I recently participated in a scarf themed swap. Here was my contribution:


Pattern: Nessie-English
Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit sock yarn
Modifications: The lace inset is written as a doubling of stitches (k1 yo) but I did not have enough yarn when I did that, despite the pattern's statement that 400yds should be enough. I was seriously short even thought the skein was 459 yards. So I did yo k2tog. I also did a picot bindoff.

This yarn is a lovely soft wool. A pleasure to knit with. It had been sitting in my stash for way too long, so I am glad it has gone to a good home!
