alpaca scarf

I don't think I've showed you the progress on the alpaca scarf lately. Most of this was accomplished on the plane ride to and from TN. We've discovered that it's impossible to photograph this color, but here are the best shots we could get:

It's not quite as wide as I would have liked (ideally, I wanted a stole, but I didn't have enough yarn), but it should block a little wider. The garter stitch lace has a pretty strong bias which alternates between sections and evens out the yarn bias beautifully. I've used up about a third of my yarn, and I'm already at 4 feet, so it will be long, if not wide. And did I mention it's soft?
