Tudor Grace

I got home from work yesterday and fell onto the couch. There was a bit of knitting but mostly resting. We watched a very bad movie about a run away train with Denzel Washington. I can't remember the name and it doesn't really matter. If you are debating between it and another movie I suggest you pick the other one.

This is Tudor Grace from Anne Hanson.

This scarf features a twining openwork chain pattern in neat vertical repeats like climbing roses. A simple six-row repeat with lace knitting on the right side only, this one knits up quickly and makes a great on-the-go project using any soft sock weight or sport yarn. 
Suggested Yarns: Briar Rose Sea Pearl or Grace, Fearless Fibers Merino/Tencel or Cashmere Sport, Woolen Rabbit Opulence or Harmony Sock, Knitting Notions Classsic Bamboo/Merino, Yarn Nerd Bambylon, Ball and Skein Artisan Merino Silk or Tashi, Handmaiden Sea Silk or Casbah, or any soft fingering/sport yarn.  
Finished Size: 10” W x 42” L (stretched and blocked) 

Yarn Requirements: 325 yards 

Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows = 4” in stockinette (unblocked; fabric will be relaxed)

Needles: size 4US (3.5mm) or size to obtain correct gauge
Here is my Tudor Grace in tosh pashmina. The yarn feels great. If you need to make a scarf I highly recommend it.

The yarn is a bit thicker than fingering weight. I am using a 4mm needle and took out one pattern repeat.

The pattern is a six row repeat with both written and charted instructions. The wrong side rows are knits and purls. I like to think of these as relaxing rows-not much thinking.

My dad safely arrived in Honduras on Wednesday evening. Their flight left Toronto late and they had to run in Miami to make their connection. Their trip has been smooth since then. Mom has talked to dad a few times and we are getting updates on Facebook.

Lots of football today. NFL and the Grey Cup. Hopefully I will get some done on Tudor Grace.
