The Only Olympics I'll Ever Hope to Participate In

Ok, I've been convinced. I have to go along with the crowd and join the Knitting Olympics. I have two lovely skiens of cream colored Baby Alpaca yarn I bought from Neighborhood Knits last fall. They need to become something special. I'm torn between the Branching Out scarf from Knitty or the Irish Hiking Scarf. I love cables, but always wind up with holes. I have yet to try my hand at lace. The alpaca might be soft and dreamy enough to be a perfect lace scarf. Ok, looking at the patterns and yardage...it'll have to be Branching Out.

So here goes, my first lace project and my first scarf for the Knitting Olympics!
