Fern Scarf Finished

After taking almost all day to dry, I was finally able to take photos of my finished scarf for the first project in Camp Loopy! I just love it and even though it was so warm and humid today, I did wear it all day. (I'm blaming my messy hair on the humidity.)

I won't go into great detail about it because I did have issues with the knitting. Nothing with the pattern or anything, but this was my first time with lace. I have now learned how to pick up dropped stitches in lace. Even though it was a challenge at times, I'm glad I pushed through and will be knitting up more lace patterns in the future.

The finished length is about 76". The pattern was written with 60 cast on stitches and to gain length, I cut it to 50 stitches and am pleased with how long it is. The width works as well because it is not meant for warmth at all.

More details can be found on my Ravelry project page (if you have an account there).

I also want to recommend The Loopy Ewe as a yarn shop. If you knit or crochet (or even spin) do check them out. They have excellent customer service, great yarns in stock, and bonuses for ordering from them. I already have a $25 credit after finding them in May and am one order away from becoming a Groupy. I still support my local yarn shop but find that the prices are better at The Loopy Ewe and they have a better selection.

Before posting this I finished winding the three skeins for my second project. So I am tired and it is late, so I will be back tomorrow with another update!
