New to the KAL!

Hello, my name is Melissa and I was just recently invited to join you all in your knitting of the Branching Out Scarf featured in Knitty. I started the scarf with some friends on another site and have also created a group through the flickr photosite. I am using size six Addi circs and the yarn is Knit Picks Sock Garden (100% Merino Wool) in Morning Glory. I had purchased Malabrigo Lace in Purple Mistery, but it was way too light and had no drape. Here is my progress so far:


I like how the colorway is working out. I think the yellow brings a little extra to the pattern. I am excited to continue with the scarf and am looking forward to blocking it, as that is when lace really comes to life.
Thanks again for the invite! I am excited to see everyone else's progress as well!
