Branching Out

Pattern: Branching Out by Susan Pierce Lawrence

Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool

Needles: Clover Takumi Bamboo straights, size 8

Verdict: Love it!

Pattern is easy to do, but for some reason I never did learn it. Still had to look at the pattern every row. And, also for some unknown reason, the written instructions were what I used, not the chart. No explanation; maybe it goes back to the way I learned to knit, doing Aran cables from written instructions.

Yarn is wonderful. Crisp (or crunchy, as I've come to think of it). Good stitch definition, no knots whatever.

Very pretty, and in my favorite color. I have that one on my list but still haven't done it yet.
I, too, have a pug, Libby (Liberty). Aren't they great?

just curious as to how many skeins you used and the finished length of the scarf. the scarf is lovely.
