My friend Gail gave me and awesome skein of yarn that she received in one of her Woolgirl sock club packages. It's a hand-dyed semi-solid wool with little bits of sparkly silver. I thought it would be perfect for this scarf pattern, and it totally was! The lace chart was pretty tricky to get the hang of. On the beginning end of the scarf, my ladders don't quite line up and some of them are twisted, but I did get the hang of it by the third or forth repeat of the pattern. I love how the little triangles look like little sailboats. It's kind of too warm to wear this now, but I think I'll be wearing it a lot come fall.
