with lace weight yarn!

Having treated myself some while ago (here) to the yarn, yarn winder and umbrella swift, I thought I was ready to spring into hooky action.  I’d done my research and found a few likely patterns and off I went.  The results however, weren’t so good.  Watersmeet was tried and unravelled on no less than 3 occasions, using different patterns.

I absolutely LOVE the yarn – it’s astonishingly beautiful, but whatever shall I make?  Here’s my latest attempt – a scarf …

A simple enough combination of trebles and chains, I intend working in this fan pattern for about 10″ and then add a pineapple border at both ends.  But again, indecision has set in.  It’s curling dreadfully and I’m not convinced that a final blocking will sort this out.

I could do with some advice – any directions to patterns that spring into your mind, that would work well for 800 yds of lace weight yarn, would be much appreciated.  I’m thinking scarves or snoods.  I know it’s going to take me till next winter, so I don’t mind if it’s a bit of a challenge, though I’d be very happy with simple, hook-along crochet too.

Let me know – I’m getting worn out by this particular battle!
