HEADING FOR THE BORDER

A lot was accomplished at the Ferals' meeting on Monday night. I finished the last of the lace repeats on the Bronte scarf -- whoohoo! -- and am heading for the final border. Only 40 rows more to knit, and then she'll be ready for blocking!

The Bronte scarf pattern calls for 7 balls of Yorkshire Tweed 4-ply, and it also calls for 10 pattern repeats of lace. When I finished the 10th repeat, I still had quite a lot of yarn left on the 6th ball, and the 7th ball on deck. Since I prefer scarves longer rather than shorter, I went for an 11th repeat of the lace, and that it what I completed Monday night. 11 repeats, and still yarn left on the 6th ball. (Pause, now, for a commercial: Yorkshire Tweed 4-ply and the Bronte scarf pattern in A Yorkshire Fable are available from Two Swans. Now, we'll return to our regular programming.)

I don't want to steal Ryan's thunder, so let's just say that she made some Very Important Progress on her Celtic pillow on Monday night. Check it out!
