Finishing My Lace Scarf

This was one of my quicker projects.  I knit until I was almost out of yarn.  I’ll admit that I had a little more orange left and that I decided to stop when the second end was similar in amount of orangeness to the first.


From this picture, you can see the distribution of the colors.  Meg makes it a point not to have her colors machine-like and precise, but there is a rhythm to the color distribution nonetheless.

It seems that all knitted objects are hard to photograph, but scarves are particularly hard for me.  I tried a lot of things, none of which worked terribly well, but here are some more anyway.

This one is a straightforward shot from the front, which has the advantage of showing how my one shawl pin goes very nicely with this scarf:

Here is a shot showing that I have a pair of earrings that really goes with the scarf, too.

And here is one that was taken without flash and before it was really dark, outside. The colors seem fairly accurate to me here.

That one shows Annie Maloney’s lovely stitch pattern pretty well, too.  Ah well, it’s a lovely little scarf finished just in time for the really hot weather when I certainly won’t wear it.  But I enjoyed knitting it, anyhow!

    The herringbone stitch is even more beautiful knit up in a scarf and put to use, Anne. I love the outside shot on grass the most. And those earrings are stunning. Did you know you have it to match the scarf? I bet your whole wardrobe is fully coordinated 😀 I have a friend who has every color shawl to go with her tops, pants, shoes, earrings…no joke!

    You look lovely and so does the scarf! That’s more of that amazing Catnip yarn, isn’t it? I hate photographing scarves, too. There’s gotta be a trick…
