WIP - Lace Scarf

I have had this Wendy Happy yarn for quite a while now. This was one of my impulse buys - it was 50% off marked price and the colour combination spoke to me at the time.

Now, I said it before and I say it again - I am not a fan of multicoloured yarn and I have not idea why I keep getting drawn to it. Somehow this one screamed "socks!" at me and it was in the bag.

Since I bought it I did cast on a number of socks but none worked for me because the yarn is so stretchy that when you come to pick up the heel flap side stitches for the gusset you end up with gaping holes.
So, that idea was binned - what next?
A cardigan would have been great but I did not have enough of the yarn for that and there was no way I was going to buy another two balls at full price, just to find out later on that I may also not like the cardigan.
You guys know me, so far I have not kept one item of clothing other than scarves....

There it was - the idea on what to do with this yarn: a scarf (because I don't have too many already...)
I searched through ravelry and found the Sojourn Falls pattern, which I cast on straight away and the baby pretty much flies off the needles.
Naturally this will need some serious blocking to bring out the pattern, but I am really excited about the scarf. Because the Wendy Happy is so light it can be worn in the summer time too.

  1. Sorry the socks didn't turned out any good. But I guess that doesn't matter when you will have such a beautiful scarf!
    Love the blue and the yellowish together.

  2. Oh my, that is so, so beautiful! Now I think that the yarn would be wasted on socks having seen how the scarf is turning out! Wow!

  3. It is looking gorgeous so far, I love the colours of the yarn! :)

  4. This is looking beautiful! Such a pretty pattern, and I think the multi-colored yarn looks fabulous!
