There is Lace in my Haze

Scarf Lace (2) blur
This is my latest creation. It is a lace scarf in the Estonian Style, well that is what I think. It is inspired by the readings of Lace from Estonia by Nancy Bush. It is simple and very fast. There may be more to come in the near future as I get to practice some more. The yarn was variegated in a camo colorway, but I did not like the yarn color that much. It has been overdyed with Brown and I really like the way it looks. The yarn is Oak by Fibranatura and it is a blend of 60 wool,20 silk and 20 linen. I do like the yarn, I hate the color it had, lol. It is blocking , I used this fiber to test the pattern, but the real fiber will be Malabrigo Arroyo. I can't wait until it is made in Arroyo. Malabrigo yarns was kind enough to gift me three skeins of yarn. I am hoping to create a scarf, a Crochet hat and maybe a Crochet Shawl. This guy is actually drying at the moment and once I am done with the Malabrigo version, I will post a clear picture.  This is the before and after of the yarn.
