I tatted away all last week on my Lace Mat, only to discover after finishing Round 4 except for the little clovers, that I had made a Dreadful Mistake and had to cut off the whole round. Bother.
I didn't feel much like looking at it for a while, so I knitted all weekend. I eyed my dwindling skein of yarn with some trepidation, but finished the project with a whopping 2 yards left over.
The pattern is "Wingspan" by Maylin Tri'Coterie Designs, available as a free pattern on Ravelry. In a thicker yarn, it works up as a shawlette, but my rather thin yarn came out as a scarf,which is what I wanted anyway. I spun the yarn with a drop spindle, using hand painted Blueface Leicester top from Three Waters Farm.
