Wrangling Lace

I've had this cone of mohair blend and (OMG) four dark green ones that are similar, for a while. Only recently discovered what they seem to 'want' to be... Lace!

I signed up for the Obscuriosity knit-along at Ravelry and elected to do a scarf using the "Meandering Vines" shawl pattern by zuzusus.
Only the first few repeats have been blocked; the eyelets almost look like the heads of wheat, or wisteria blossoms, or lilies of the valley to me. I've been using Design-a-Knit to develop the chart for machine knitting this motif... it's a 12 stitch repeat, so any machine with a lace carriage will be able to do it. Watch this space for the chart (it will be a long one)
