I've found that life lines have saved my sorry butt way too much.  AND as an added benefit, they can help you with row counting!

jacqui -- or anyone who did this with micro spun... what were your results??? I went out and bought microspun but then i read somewhere that it was difficult to do lace with microspun  Sad

also what size needles did you use?

Im doing mine in microspun, its a real pain. I think im using...8s. The yarn splits like CRAZY and when it gets real bad, you can see the seperations within the pattern itself. It looks messy in parts. I think its probably more of a pain than its worth, unless your like me and demand to use it because its in awesome colours and so darn soft.

the only problem i had with microspun was that it split easily. but it's really soft, inexpensive, and has nice colors so i lived with it. i'm probably going to use it again but in a different color so i can make a branching out scarf for a friend.

i used size 7 needles. it came out a bit shorter than i expected.

here's the only picture i have of my finished scarf right now. i used "mocha", the color is actually lighter in real life. it looks a bit wavy in the middle but it's not,  i was just too lazy to straighten it:

If nothing else, this pattern has made me a convert to both lifelines and row counters. I don't think I'd be able to finish without them.

thanks, daria. it's lionbrand microspun in mocha. 100% microfiber acrylic is what it says on the label.

Here are my two Branching Outs. I used them as a stashbuster, I knitted one on the plane to the West Coast and one on the way back. There are some mistakes in them but I'm happy with them. I think I would like this pattern to knit as a gift in a nicer yarn.

Here's the white and green next to each other...for some reason the green looks black.


A better shot of the color of the green:


I'm glad this was my first attempt at lace knitting, it's making working on Lucky from SNBN much easier.
