The vine lace scarf is going quite well. It pays to listen to your yarn! I had to increase all the way up to a size 7 needle to offset the bounciness of this yarn, but that means that the knitting is going very quickly. It’s hard to see the pattern unblocked, so I pinned it out quickly for photos:

I’m still having serious lighting issues, so these were taken with the flash, and still aren’t perfect. Light box for Christmas?
