Finished scarf - parti colored lace

Scarf, mixed fibers: polyester, nylon, simple lace stitch, size 10 plastic needles, 10 in.

This was definitely an impulse and it knitted up very quickly. The nylon makes it a rather heavy fabric in spite of its lacy construction. The photo doesn't capture the bright colors, which are also very shiny.

I struggled for quite awhile with this lace - I mean for years. It's very easy to make a mistake at the end of one particular row in the four-row pattern. This piece was about the first time that I "got it" without having to rip out many rows. It's a good thing, because trying to see the individual stitches with a yarn of this nature is almost impossible.
