It has taken me FOREVER to finish this scarf (started in 2004). I must have ripped it out at least four times in disgust. It is a very easy pattern to follow, but I would end up not paying attention and I would lose the whole "yarnover, pearl through the back, slip stitch...." rhythm I had going. Lets just say I was very happy to get this one off my list. Unfortunately, Blue Sky took the pattern off of their site a while ago. This yarn is perfect for a nice, light scarf. Any lacy scarf pattern would work just as well. Besides, how many times does a girl actually get to the opera anymore these days?
