Fiber Arts Friday: Modified Rill Scarf

The Rill Scarf has been in my Ravelry favorites for quite a while.  I love the simple elegance of this pattern and have had a few different ideas about which yarn to use.

So after finishing the Alpaca Cape, I decided on fine gauge alpaca that has been in my stash for quite a while too

I don't really enjoy making lace. So after about 6 or 8 rows I had messed it up.  Yes it's a simple lace pattern and yes I messed it up.  :-/  Maybe I should take a class one day... I think lace can be truly beautiful and I would like to do it well. But for now, I changed the lace panel to garter stitch.

After a couple of more false starts, I think (hope) I'm on my way.  ;-)

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

I mess up Garter Stitch. Seriously. I have to use a Life Line in everything I knit. Every. Single. Thing.

The yarn looks so, so soft!
Oh I hope you will give some small lace thing a try sometime. It just takes perseverance and then BOOM...Suddenly your hand and brain connect and lovely lace is emerges. We know you can do it!
