1st Commissioned Work

I made this for a friend (at a price) to give his wife for Christmas. I used the Diagonal Lace Scarf pattern and added a squared design to the beginning and end of the scarf. I do hope his wife likes it. It was the first project I used the lace blocking wires on. They are awesome. I need to make a blocking station next.

As to the price I charged, I think we all know there is no way I would get back the hours in any monetary amount. I basically doubled the the yarn cost. I'm so cheap.

Mom's Scarf

Not the best picture. This was made using the Falling Water Lace Scarf pattern. I just skipped one of the repeats. I had only bought one ball of yarn (it was a little pricey.) Mom liked it and that is all that matters.
