It's beautiful! May I ask what color you used?
Undecided  I bought the yarn a couple of years ago, and really don't remember ..... But there is a link to the store in my first post, so if you browse through the colors of the lace yarn I'm sure you'll find it  Grin

I know it's really pointless to ask a knitter how long it took to do something because it really depends on how much time they put into the project, but about how long did it take you to knit that? How often did you work on it?
Wink  I work nightshift as a nurse but I'm lucky to work at an institution where most of the patients sleeps at night (even though they are drugaddicts). So, I started the scarf on a saturday night and worked on it for two nightshifts and one evening at home. That would be quite a few hours, but not so many days since I can knit almost all the time while at work  Wink

That is gorgeous! I love the lace detail. I would love to make this, and went and looked at the site to purchase the pattern, but before I buy it I wanted to ask you what stitches were used. I'm a fairly new knitter, pretty much knits and purls at this point, I'm sure with lace you do some drop stitches--I've done enough of those accidentally I could probably try and do it on purpose Smiley. But I was wondering if there were other, more advanced techniques used. I'd hate to buy the pattern and  then have it be beyond my level. Thanks! Love the color you chose by the way Smiley
The pattern is recommended for advanced beginners. The stitches comes with a very detailed instruction actually. The scarf has one overall pattern that is repeated, and one part is made of knot-stitches. I had never knitted them before, but the instructions are great. Another part of the pattern is just a chart and the instructions for the chart is also very detailed  Smiley  I would think that the scarf-version is the easiest one since you don't do any increases (or decreases... I haven't read the pattern yet so I don't know which end you start  Cheesy )

That's beautiful!  I love the fringe.  What kind of yarn did you use?

Thanks  Wink  Yarn used is lace wool from Handpainted Yarn (link in my first post  Cheesy )

I just finished this scarf and I love it! It's the Florence scarf, a design by Fiddlestick Knitting. I got the pattern here but I think you can get it lots of places  Wink  I used about 50 g lace wool from Handpainted Yarn  The pattern has a shawl version too, and I would really like to make one  Grin

 Wink The summer here in Norway has been a wet and cold one so far, so knitting mittens is not such a bad idea actually  Grin

I'm so proud of my Paradoxical Mittens and had to show them off!!
The pattern is designed by Lucy Neatby. I knitted the mittens in Finull (100% wool) by Rauma, on needles 2,5 mm. Fun and easy to knit Smiley
