I've been knitting the Skeleton Scarf from Arctic Lace: Knitting Projects and Stories Inspired by Alaska's Native Knitters and I am really enjoying this pattern. Although it is a very regular and predicable chart, the repeat is 92 rows long so you never get bored. Although the pattern calls for 3 repeats for a short scarf, I am knitting four at a larger gauge--so I will have a wide scarf (or narrow stole) of about five and a half feet long.
Although I did not splurge for qivuit, alpaca makes a gloriously soft substitute.
The pattern is based on a wooden spoon painted with a traditional "x-ray" painting of a monster--showing its skeleton in the same pattern as the lace. Very cool.
The dark lines are the shadows of the window panes with bright sunshine coming through. Right after taking the picture, it began snowing for the first time this winter!
