Casting Off

I'm in the home stretch on my Linen Stitch scarf-the cast off is almost finished. I wanted a picture before I left for the day so it's still on the needle.
I think I could have added two more rows (I hate having yarn left over) but I was afraid that I might have calculated wrong and would run out part way through one of the rows. That would have been worse than having left over yarn. :)
It's actually more of a shawl than a scarf which isn't a bad thing. I'm going to have fun picking shawl pins to go with it next week.

All ends are sewn in. DONE.
Pattern: The Lonely Tree Shawl (free on Ravelry)
I added in an extra chart (Chart D) which isn't on the pattern but you can download here.

Yarn: 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces Haymarket in the colour Daley

Needles: 5.5mm
It was a beautiful day in Ancaster today. The sun was shining (as you can see from my pictures) and it felt like spring. Beth called to say she was going grocery shopping and what did I want for dinner. Steak and baked potatoes on the barbecue won. Dinner was great but now I need a nap. But I can't because I want to get the scarf cast off and pull Eos (my white cotton sweater) out of the bag. It's only 4 weeks today until the Frolic.

What pretty projects. I like them both very much. :) Love that purple!

Happy Easter from Port Canaveral, Florida, where I am in the real world today and can log on to visit you and other blogs. ;)
