Jumping on the bandwagon

I've seen so many beautiful Branching Outs that I've finally decided to try one. I've been knitting off and on for most of my life and have never tried lace before and Everyone said it was a good beginner lace project. I went to my LYS and picked up a 50g ball of Jaeger Baby Merino DK in Olive and have cast on.

Pictures will follow when I get farther along. I really like this color and I think it will show off the pattern really well.

Before I even went out to the LYS I decided to see if I could at least do the pattern so I got some Bernat Softee Baby yarn and 10½ needles and did one pattern repeat. I only messed up once-my own fault-but I found it very easy to knit. I might keep going with that to see what it will look like knit up. I know it won't be very light and lacy and won't block like the merino one but I think it'll still look nice on its own and be a nice cool weather scarf.
