The only problem with starting with such a dark colour it was hard going but now that the subtle colour changes are emerging the knitting is much easier, quicker and far more enjoyable. I've not tackled many lace patterns before (but the birch trees scarf that I love) but because the panels are inter mixed with garter ridges and garter bands even I've managed to cope. The pattern flows beautifully and the colour change yarn guides you quickly to the next colour. Its a difficult pattern to put down and very enjoyable!

Lisa is very talented and recently crochet me a beautiful shawl in this yarn from the pattern Lost in Time Shawl, its absolutely stunning and I've worn it a couple of times but saving this for my holiday later this month. So soft and warm yet light and very comfortable on your skin, which is a bonus after the last shawl I made which was a little itchy.
I'm hoping to get some knitting time this afternoon to continue with the garter band before going onto the longest zig zig lace panel (which requires a little more concentration) Enjoy your Saturday and here are some pictures of my progress so far.
The pattern has now been launched and is available to buy on Ravelry, please click here
