FO - crochet lace scarf

Yup, another lace scarf.  I can't help myself, I just love the simplicity of this design and how easy the project is to cart around on public transport.  This scarf is actually my third but the second (made mostly on the way home from Orkney) was never blogged - I had intended it to be a Christmas gift but couldn't decide who to give it to, so maybe this year it'll make it out of the gift drawer!

Pattern - Triangle Shawl by Pierrot

Yarn - Lanoso Alpacana (200g inc pompom)

Hook - 5mm

Additions - Pompom made using small yellow Clover Pom-Pom Maker*

Notes - I got this gorgeous yarn from Tam's mum last year.  She found it in Estonia when she was on a cruise to Russia, although the yarn is actually made in Turkey.  It might be my most well-travelled piece of knitwear!  It's a wool/acrylic/alpaca mix and it's very fluffy.  I did a lot of the crocheting on the train when I went to visit Sarah last month and by the time I arrived, I required a good brush down before I could show my black dress in public again.  Because of course I had to be wearing black when I got yarn attacked.

At this point, I have nothing new to say about the construction.  I like how the colours have spread and pooled at different points, and that there was just the right amount of yarn left at the end to add a wee pompom.  This might become a feature of all future scarves - you guys know about my thing for pompoms, right?  I even have a dedicated board on Pinterest.

Although I always turn to this pattern when I only have a couple of balls of yarn to use, I'd like to try it out with an extra ball or maybe a contrasting border, so there will definitely be more of this pattern in future.
