WIP: V is for Villeray


Villeray1, originally uploaded by ontheroundfiberart.

I've recently cast on Villeray, by by Ariane Caron-Lacoste, of Falling Stitches. This is a great beginner lace project and seems to be working out for my late night TV knitting. The pattern is fairly easy to memorize so I don't have to look down too much, and where it's a scarf there is no difficult shaping!

I am knitting it in some beautiful green Egyptian Cotton yarn that has been kicking around my stash for years. I bought it originally to knit a onsie while I was pregnant with my first. The impracticality of that project became quickly evident and I ripped it out probably 20 rows in. I'm glad I kept the yarn around though, because it is working out very nicely for this pattern.

I've still got a LONG way to go on it...hopefully I can persevere!

    1. Thanks! I need to figure out the details of the yarn still. I think I have a skein left with the tags still on it, just need to find it!

  3. I have a lacy scarf in the works that I'm getting only about one pattern rep done in a day. We'll persevere together. :)
