What materials did you use? I used "I Love This Chunky" super soft bulky yarn. 100% Acrylic. The color is "Tiger Eyes". I wasn't sure what type of yarn to use initially for this project.

Here is my first project for the Knit Lab class. I experienced a few issues with this project. One was that I miscounted on the first half of the project and so my lacy side without keyhole is much larger than the other side. I don't this is a terrible problem since they are meant to go together. I think the yarn that I chose for this project was a bit too bulky to really showcase my lace stitches... but they certainly aren't too bad. I like the way the first keyhole turned out. I plan to use it again on a simple scarf I am making for my son so that it stays around his neck while he is skateboarding so awesome lesson. I am sure the next one will turn out much better. I too experienced a few issues with the sides of my scarf looking more lumpy. Again... not bad for a first effort. I was amazed at the difference the steam blocking made. Of course the larger side was simply not going to lay flat as it was a bit big... but it looks much better and the smaller side lays flat.

I am enjoying learning very much. This is all an effort to make my own socks and fingerless gloves. I am anxious to learn as much as I can in both classes. I am a quilt pattern designer but not a knitter. I am trying to change that. Knitting makes such a wonderful portable project.
