0.91 skeins of Alpaca with a Twist Fino in First Frost 0099
US #4 Addi Turbo Lace 47" circulars
Alpine knit scarf with double rose leaf center pattern and diamond border by Jane Sowerby from Victorian Lace Today (which by the way is an absolutely gorgeous book)
I was determined not to have this project become a stressful last minute thing... and it didn't, but it was still kind of a pressured project as by the time I had ordered yarn, seen it wasn't the right color (too ivory) and ordered more yarn, precious time had passed and I had just over a month left. Plus, there was the whole first trimester thing... early pregnancy and deadline lace knitting with white lace weight yarn are not the two most compatible things in the entire world!
