The Purple Lace

My sister is 50 today. She’ll have a party at her house and then on Thursday her and her family – brother-in-law, my 3 nephews, and 2 nieces – will drive all the way up to Berlin to stay with us for a long weekend and to celebrate some more.

The house is getting ready (I am counting couches, bedsteads, and mattresses …) and so are we.

And YES, I did finish the lace in time! In spite of my quarrelling, unraveling, and whining🙂 When halfway through, I actually loved making it. The color is gorgeous, the feel is just how I wanted it to be, and the pattern is beautiful.

So, pleased as I am, I am posting more pictures than usual.

    • Thank you!
      I have used “Lana Merino Lace” (“viola scurio” is the color), a little less than 140gr (50gr = 350m running length). It is 100% wool and wasn’t all that expensive (50gr = 5,75 EUR) after all.
      An earlier post (“Lace Debut”) shows the skein and has a link to the original (and easy) pattern. My scarf is a lot wider though (as I wanted it to be more of a wrap). It measures 52x200cm.
      Hope that helps. Sorry for not converting all data …
