French trellis scarf

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.19.2008

Just to warn you, I might have several knitting blog posts this month since I’m finishing gifts.

I just completed a beautiful scarf from Victorian Lace Today in a taupe heather color wool laceweight yarn.

I’m very proud of this scarf because it’s the first time I knitted with beads. I used these “crystal honey” color beads that I added to the florettes on the two end borders and in lines along the sides of the scarf.

(If you’re on Ravelry, more info on the yarn, needles, etc. is here.)

This is what it looked like while I was still knitting it.



And this is the finished product.

  9. CRYSTAL honey beads are very special, no doubt! This is absolutely stunning, Camy. Whoever gets this is so blessed!

    Can't wait to see other things, too. You are making me want to do creative things like this (NOT knitting--tried that once.)

    How do you put your Twitter posts on your blog??? I can't even figure that out.

  11. Sarah, don't say that! Anything handmade is super special. I am trying to give as many homemade gifts as I can this year. I got the idea from other people who are doing it too, buying stuff from Etsy.com rather
    than Macy's.
