Come Sing me La

"You ain't been 'till you been high in Montego Bay
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Come sing me La
Come sing me Montego Bay"

Well I am officially in love! I have finished my Montego Bay scarf from Interweave Knits Summer 2007. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in rainbow and it has just turned out to be absolutely beautiful! It is long and floaty and colourful and.... well let's just say I love it!

Pattern: simple
Mods: None, except I haven't braided the fringing, although I may have to eventually if they are fraying or tangling too much
My best tip: A lace lifeline is your best friend. The pattern was so simple that it was perhaps a little too easy to miss a yarn over and throw the whole thing out.

The only thing I would change? The second skein had been balled and then reskeined and thus was backwards in relation to the other. If I had caught this earlier I would have balled it again but frankly I just don't care! I love this scarf with all it's foibles.

Ohh gorgeous! Love it!

I actually have a skein of bamboo set aside for this, but may save it for spring/summer knitting!
