Here is my latest creation. I saw a scarf with ribbon woven into eyelets in a shop and thought "I can do that"

and here's an attempt to show a little of the stitch detail, sorry, not the greatest photo ever.

I used size 11 needles and a fingering weight alpaca. At least, I'm pretty sure it's fingering weight. The ribbon is Katia Electra, and it's the only knitting ribbon I've ever worked with that I haven't come to hate after 10 minutes.

That's a great idea!  I love the look of ribbon yarn but can't stand to knit with it.  Now I know what to do with the ribbon in my stash.  Cheesy

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

Is the alpaca very warm, even at such an open gauge?

thank you all for your kind comments!

The scarf is pretty lacy stretched out, but it is also pretty wide. When you wrap it around your neck it bunches up and is pretty substantial. I'm not saying it is the thing for sub-zero tramps in the snow, but it will keep the chill off your neck with an elegant coat when you go out in the evening.

"pattern" such as it is will be posted soon, but I'm a little backlogged on this sort of thing at the moment.
