Finished! Bamboo scarf

This here is the finished version of Eye Candy Friday from a couple of weeks ago. It's for my professor at UW, so it's fitting that today's picture has it so "artfully" (right!) draped over my piano. I wish the colors were better (i.e. in natural light), because they look a little washed out in this photo, but I'm giving it to her tomorrow, and I wanted to make sure I got a picture tonight. This was a quick little project, but very pretty, I think.

Yarn: 1 skein (250 yds!) Southwest Trading Co. 100% Bamboo, in the color "Intensity"
Pattern: Tilted garter-stitch-lace-checkerboard thingy from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Gauge: ??
Needles: Size 7 cheapy plastic ones I've had forever
Comments: This yarn is silky soft, much softer than the red stuff I have, which is odd, since they're the exact same fiber content. The lady at the yarn store told me there must be something about the dyeing process in the variegated skeins that makes them so much softer.

I hope she likes it!

wow, that's impressive. i have yet to venture into lace knitting territory, since i can barely maintain the concentration needed for a simple basketweave pattern. but that scarf is inspiring...
