I have just finished (well, actually a couple of weeks ago now) a beautiful scarf in Yarntelier Cashmere Lace.
I got the yarn from Louisa Harding's studio in the Byram Arcade in Huddersfield, along with the pattern. The design is Olena, and it makes a scarf so light and airy that one 50g. ball of yarn makes a good sized scarf (mine is about 135cm. x 25cm.).
Louisa intended the scarf to have beads in the lace for the first few pattern repeats at each end of the scarf:
But I'm not a beaded scarf sort of person, so I left those off. I also didn't do the picot cast on, though I did try it - I couldn't make it look neat, so just did a regular cast on.
The lace pattern is really beautiful. It's not one that I know, but could well supplant Print o' the Wave as my favourite lace stitch.
I did a lot of the knitting in public, i.e. in the various knitting groups that I go to, but that wasn't a very good idea. I made a few mistakes in the lace. the worst being near the beginning when I had to unravel about 15cm., which at that point was more than half of what I had already done. I did think about leaving it, because I thought that no-one else would see the mistake, which is probably true. But I am very glad that corrected it, because now it's perfect. I made a few more mistakes, but I made sure to check more often, so correcting them wasn't such a big deal.
Louisa promised that washing the finished knit, to get the spinning oil out, would make a huge difference - the cashmere would 'bloom'. And she was right - it felt quite soft while I was knitting it, but now it is delightful. Very soft, warm, and light, and the colour is gorgeous too - not quite solid, a lovely grey-blue. I love my scarf.
