The Olympics are over and my sweater has finished blocking (just in time for a few lovely, cool days). I love my new sweater, and there’s no denying that speed knitting can be very satisfying, but now my mind is wandering to a new project. Something that I can really sink my teeth into, something I can work on slowly and carefully. Something stupidly elaborate and full of ridiculous details.
This scarf/wrap is just gorgeous. I love the use of a semi-solid with the slowly-transitioning rainbow colorway. And the little sticky-outy leaves are a fantastic detail. (Though one I think would drive me a little bit crazy to work up.)

And, I do love lace. It’s been years since I really sunk my teeth into a full-on lace shawl. And this one has beads. (And little cables.)
