Juno Rejoicing!

Juno Regina!  With rejoicing!

I love it!!

I love the yarn -- even with the picking out of little straw bits at surprisingly regular intervals (and I'm sure I've missed a few bits that I'll be picking out later).

I love the colors -- they're perfect for fall!  I especially love how the colors and striping remain consistent throughout, even while changing and displaying all the subtle nuances that hand-dyed yarn should have.

I love the pattern -- it is truly... Mimsical!  Mim's Juno Regina is the perfect project for a lace newbie like me -- challenging at the beginning, a long portion of cruising (which makes for excellent travel knitting!), followed by a recap & review of the challenging portion.

YarnMorehouse Farm Merino Lace, 660 yards (one hank), purchased at Rhinebeck 2006

Needles:  4US, straights

Mods:  Eliminated one pattern repeat at each side to make it narrower -- more of a scarf than a stole.  It's still wider than I normally like my scarves, but it's also lacey and drapey, and so just perfect!

I also love my camera and my 50mm lens.  Knitting: Shawls, Shrugs & Scarves set on Flickr.

Just beautiful! I love the lace at the end! :)

Lovely!

I'm going to have to give this a try.

It's just beautiful, Vicki! Look at you go with the lace!!

Good work! Juno is going to look marvelous on you!

Oh wow - that is gorgeous!

It really is pretty. And I know how wonderful the Morehouse yarn feels to knit with and to wear!

I love it! Just gorgeous. And now that you have used some of your Rhinebeck stash, you need to find a way to come replenish it. :)

Well - it's just lovely! Of course, I'd love to see it on you! We were in Green Lake over the weekend but I didn't dare let you know as it was a quick "in & out" trip and I feared I spend all my time with you if you had time to spare!!

OOh, la, la.
How pretty.
You are ready for Fall in lace!

It IS lovely. And clever you, the way you mimicked Mim's original photo shoot :-)

It is Mimsical! Love the surprise ending. It adds a classy touch. It looks like it will be well-loved.

those are delicious colors! and a delightful project, too.

Your scarf has turned out wonderful! Scrumptious colors and fine knitting. Great job.

So very pretty! Great job.

It's beautiful, Vicki! I can understand why you would be so in love.

Beautiful scarf! I'm knitting scarves for Christmas gifts this year. Only, I wish they weren't so ... long.
