Midwest Moonlight / Mr. Moonlight

Whenever I went to pick up the Midwest Moonlight I was working on the Beatles song, Mr. Moonlight had to be sung.

But sometimes instead of the "come again please" I would be singing, "go away please".

Now that it is blocking, I see that there are a few errors. But no biggie because it is black and will be worn on a black coat (my sister’s) and that is that. It is pretty though. Here is a pic of it blocking on one of those foam floor tile thingies so you can really see the lace squares.



I used KnitPicks fingering weight yarn, incredibly inexpensive Palette. Only $1.79 per ball, 231 yards/50 gr and used only 2 of the 3 I had purchased. That makes a great scarf for only $3.58!!!

Even though I had occassional fits with the black yarn, which was more than a bit splity, I am thinking I could make another whole scarf out of that one ball if I make it half as wide. I like skinny scarves but working on black yarn is kind of a pain. Best to start another project first and then see how I feel about it later.

Peace!

    Awesome scarf! I LOVE that pattern, in fact that's the first one I'm going to do and have Palette in Blush in my stash! What size needles did you use?

    That's really nice looking. From the photo in the book, I would have never wanted to make this scarf, but now that I can see how the pattern actually looks, I'm tempted.

    Bobo and anyone else that cares: I used US size 5s for this fingering weight yarn. I think it looks plenty lacy.

    I would probably use a size 6 for any other color in Palette though. For some reason most black yarns tend to be thinner than their other colored brothers and sisters. I know there is some logical reason for this - just escapes me at this moment.
