Peacock Strut

Peacocks pride is finished and blocking. I'm very happy to report it turned out nicely. I'll be shuttling it off to the far reaches of the world (relativly speaking of course) shortly where I sincerely hope my Scarf Exchange Pal will adore it and wear it often.



And a nice closeup. I love the color varigation in this scarf.

Can't wait till she gets it!!

Wow that's gorgeous! I love it. I wish it was for me but I'm guessing California doesn't count as the far reaches from Colorado! I'm sure your pal will love it. Great work.

Sorry to answer comments with a comment but it's the best I could think of. The pattern is from the book Lavish Lace and is called Peacocks Pride. The book is really cool and is set up for a beginning lace knitter with the easiest pattern in the front and as you make each of them you learn some new technique that will make you a fabulous lace knitter by the end. Needless to say I didn't bother to make them all up to this one but there are quite a few in there I find tempting. Also, most are made with sock yarn or heavier so it's not nearly as intimidating as those gossamer shawls you see out there. Especially for a first time out with lace.
