Eleanor Scarf







Now, it's not often that things turn out better than you think they will. I'd like to introduce you to Eleanor, a very simple yet strangely elegant, lace scarf for my sister. I hope that she likes it.

I made the pattern up (such as it is) and although I would be very happy to share it (if anyone is interested in having it), I think that there might be a slight snag. Here I need to explain that I have not ever seen the pattern so I could be wrong. However, from some pictures that I have seen on the internet, I think that my scarf stitch pattern looks a bit close to the Montego Bay scarf pattern?

Albeit that pattern uses a luscious lighter weight yarn and my scarf is made out of a more humble, heavier weight yarn, is narrower and has a different edging. So I am not sure whether it is okay for me to share my pattern? I am very happy to blog it, if the consensus is that it is okay. That is, if anyone would like it?

There are more photos on my Eleanor Scarf project page, if you would like to see pictures of its back and front. The same pictures are here on Flickr too (just in case you have not yet signed up to Ravelry).

Go ahead and share, by all means. Scarves are simple things, there's often some duplication in stitch pattern etc, but no one could accuse you of plagiarism based on that similarity. Yours is different enough to be worth sharing. (And it looks lovely!)

Ooh that's pretty! How could your sister NOT like it?

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! It's exactly the same conversation I had with my NQEH (not-quite-ex-husband) when I asked about cameras. He takes semi-professional pictures and has a budget-busting (wonderful) camera. I was looking at the Nikon Coolpix L18, which has 8 megapixels and 3x optical zoom (and is at a really good price this week nearby), but haven't taken the time yet to read about it online. I'll do that tonight, after I sleep today. Oh, and my scarf is almost exactly the same color as ours, just a bit more "iced" and a lot more fuzzy, with a dark thread running through it.... which isn't at all the same, is it? Sigh!
