Well I finally finished my Branching Out scarf from Knitty.  I wanted to give it to a friend for her birthday July 11 but it wasn't done.  I haven't blocked it yet and I am hoping that by blocking it the lace pattern will be more evident.  Obviously I picked the wrong yarn for this project (Reynolds 'Frisky') but it was sooooo pretty, (and pricey) and I wanted some of it so I bought three balls and thought it would work for this scarf.  The pattern is evident but rather muted.  This actually is a blessing in disguise since I made a few errors that would have been blatant had the yarn not had as much fuzz!   Roll Eyes  I have learned though - no more lace knitting while chatting, listening to music or watching TV.  This is a solo project.  I really like to multi-task when I knit and I just can't do that when I have to be so careful of the pattern.

it's pretty and I like how the pattern is subtle

I like it. It reminds me of the creek behind my house, there's this fuzzy moss on the trees and plants, kind of obscuring the leaves, but you can see (sort of) what the moss has taken over. It must feel absolutely lovely.

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

I, too, love the subtlety that you achieved with the fuzzy yarn. It looks so luxurious. Often times the details of a really expensive piece of clothing are only noticed if one looks closely. I think this adds to the appeal of high quality goods because it makes the wearer feel like the details and the work that it took to put them there are just for them. I love it. And the color is gorgeous as well.
