LSSK Missy Lace KAL, an experiment

I joined a Yahoo! group the other day and they were just about to begin a knit along. Since I'd finished Abigaile's Afghan sooner than I thought I would, I decided to give the knit along a try. One of the group members designed the pattern and it is for a lace scarf or shawl. There are instructions for making both.

I dug through my stash and didn't have any lace weight yarn that would work with the pattern, so I decided to give it a try with some of the sock weight yarn. I'm using size US 9 needles.

Now, I'm not sure whether it's the camera or my monitor, but the yarn is not blue. It is very obviously purple with just the odd hint of blue here and there. Anyhoo . . . I'm about to start on row 10 of the main pattern.

It's pretty - regardless of blue or purple - nice!

Thanks, both of you. I've been bad and not worked on it at all tonight. I actually plopped myself in front of the TV and watched.
