Trellis Scarf

1. Photographing unblocked lace is very difficult.
2. Photographing blocked lace probably isn't much easier.

Luckily, knitting lace is pretty fun. I'm on the 7th repeat of the Trellis Scarf from the Spring 2006 issue of Interweave Knits. KnitPicks' Alpaca Cloud (in horizon) is kitten soft and, at $4 per 440 yds, quite a bargain. Knitting such fine yarn on US5 needles is a bit odd at first but, as this is my first lace project, knitting laceweight yarn would likely be odd on any size needle. So far, so good.
