I just checked out the new Spring 2005 Knitty and saw the Branching Out scarf.  It was love at first sight, let me tell you.  I'm going to drop everything I'm doing to knit this baby up.

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTbranchingout.html

  I would love see all the different variations people can come up with.  It's a really easy pattern to follow.  The pattern offers both charts and the intstructions all written out.  I think that's what I love about it the most.  I think I am the only person on the face of this planet that prefers to read the pattern all written out (ex. k3, ssk, yo, [k5, yo] 3 times. . .you know, something along those lines)  as opposed to following a nice concise chart.  But what more can you expect from me?  I think I'm also one of the only people left in this world that prefers straight and double-pointed needles to circulars. 

Stop laughing.  I'm serious.

Anyhoo, anyone interested in this at all?

I'm definately interested. It's a little intimidating though, it'll be the first time I try lace knitting.

I've started it already and finished 3 repeats so far. Pretty straight forward knitting. Well, that's because I just also finished my flower basket shawl so lace knitting ain't daunting me. I'd like to join the KAL, and offer my very little expertise and help out other fellow new-lace-knitters. By the way, I am using the left over yarn that I knitted for the FBS - it's Misti Laceweight Alpaca. I am double stranding it and using sz 8 needles because all my other needles are tied up in other WIPs.

Count me in! Wink

Thanks guys for offering to help me along the way. I think I'll go pick up yarn today to start the scarf.  Smiley

I would love to try it! I am just finishing up a baby sweater & I have never done any lace before either but I love the way it looks! Plus it gives me a reason to head to the LYS! Ahhhhhh!

I started it last night. I had been fighting with another lace pattern and I thought this was at least more straightforward. I hope I can handle it.

I definitely plan on making this scarf. I just need to get a few things out of the way first. Hopefully I'll get to it sometime this month.
