A Lovely, Distracting Scarf

Right now, I’m distracting myself from my current knitting headache with this lovely bit of lace:

 

It’s Branching Outfrom Knitty.com, made with Patons Shetland Chunky.  This is my first lace project. Note the sliver lifeline. I’ve used it. A lot. Basic lace or not, this whole paying attention to what I’m doing thing is hard.

Let me tell you, The Daily Show and lace knitting do not mix.  It’s really more of a Cops project. With The Daily Show, I laugh enough to dislodge my marker from the chart, which leads to swearing, even with a basic pattern like this. Just as I get everything fixed, Jon Stewart says something else to make me laugh and the cycle starts again. With Cops I only have to look up when my hubby wants to point out a particularly awesome jerri curl, a high top fade or, his favorite, the mullet. I snicker, and go back to knitting. No problems.

Yeah, the mullets are pretty hilarious.
