I’ve been wanting to knit Anne Hanson’s Alhambra Scarf for some time. This winter, I cracked open a skein of cashmere and silk, and finally got around to it.

 What a fun little pattern. Just enough to be interesting without taking up too much mental capacity.

Except that, when I went to take it off of the blocking wires, an extra hole opened up. Must’ve dropped a stitch somewhere.

All fixed!

I always love blocking out lace.
