Lovely Lunna

What better way to transition from summer to winter than with a lace scarf. This one is Lunna, a Jamieson & Smith pattern.
  • Yarn: Jamieson & Smith Shetland 2-ply, 2 hanks, 252 yards each.
  • Needles: US3
  • Size: 12 inches wide by 50 inches long
What made this scarf fun is that part of it has patterning on both sides. The less fun part was grafting 67 stitches. The yarn was a bit stiff and scratchy to work with, but softened up considerably after washing.

The scarf is photographed on my Japanese lace leaf maple — a lace scarf on a lace maple. In the summer, the leaves of the tree are dark red. In the fall, the leaves "catch fire" in a stunning flame color.

Gorgeous Acer! I need to move mine before the leaves start next Spring. Both hate their positions and drop the leaves early.

BTW:: LOL, lovely scarf too :)very much sidetracked by the Acer.
