Triads


Well, there are certainly a lot of traids here! it was an interesting knit, although I do not want to see another triad for a while, after plodding through 24 repeats. I did, however, have an engaging time with the dangly balls I knit into the edging. The added weight on the ends makes the scarf stay in place instead of fluttering and flooping around.

Particulars:
Pattern:Triad by Susan Pandorf
Yarn:Handmaiden Fine Yarn Lace Silk in Rainforest (used about 250 yards)

Needle Size: #4
Beads: Stuff I bought them at Michael's. No useful labels on the packaging, I'm sorry to say.

Speaking of rain forests, we are in Costa Rica for a month. The Internet is a bit shaky, so if I don't send you comments, please forgive me (and the Costa Rican ISP).

Wow! that's all I can say. Oh, and Costa Rica - lucky you.

Laritza said...

A bunch of beads! I would call them hearts :)

Romi said...

Oooh! Pretty! I love the color of the yarn.

The triads are lovely, especially in that color of green. Enjoy your trip!

Have a wonderful trip

That's beautiful, but you had me confused with your various typos for "triads". I kept trying to figure out what are "traids". Must be that Costa Rican ISP or sun stroke at work!
Are you there on a secret mission for some yarn manufacturer or something?

Pat said...

Wow - very nice.
You do wonderful work.

LittleBerry said...

That's interesting! At first I thought the beads in the middle were round pin heads, like I use for blocking. Duh. I like the beads on the edging too.

Hope you're vacationing and not doctoring in Costa Rica. Stay well and happy, ok?

That's a stunning colorway, and the pattern itself looks divine. Like you must be divine to have that much patience. That really is a wonderful knit.

I hope you enjoy the rain forest in Costa Rica! If you are into birding at all you will see some beautiful birds - along with frogs and all sorts of fun things.

Keep knitting!

heidi said...

they really do look like hearts! I initially thought that was the intention of the pattern:)

it's really beautiful!

Jane said...

The scarf is fabulous! I love how the beads can really be seen rather than blending into the work. Hope Costa Rica is warm and you are having fun :-) Don't bring any big bugs home or Harry will have a fit!

Very nice! Have a great time in the rain forests!

Opal said...

drop.dead.gorgeous.

i hope you're enjoying the sun and the beach! :)

Batty said...

The beautiful thing about lace knitting is that it's not too warm for the beach! Just make sure you don't get sand in it.

Triad looks more like Hearts to me, but she's lovely either way.

Susan Pandorf said...

Aren't you clever!?!

I love it when someone takes something I dreamed up and makes it better.

Have a great time in Costa Rica - gotta be warmer than Indiana!

Kay said...

Quite lovely! Hope you are having a great time in CR.

Shea said...

Lovely scarf. I'm thinking it would also be great in a red too, especially with all those hearts on there.

As always, beautiful.

How/Where do you store all your gorgeous lace FO's?

Rosemary said...

I love the colors - stunning! Thanks for sharing.

By the way, you are a great photographer, in addition to being a great knitter. Thanks!

Cheers!
