Hi'ya! :waving:

Well, it is DONE! If you would like to read my comments about this version of the scarf, and see other photos of it click HERE. (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=65518)

I will say, it is helpful to use blocking wires for scarves. It completely eliminates any wonkiness to the side edges.

I blocked it by misting it down heavily, left to dry overnight!
Voila! A completely tamed, polished, smooth appearance!

My scarf used 3 full skeins, and is 73" long...and is a gift for my DD. We have a mother-daughter day tomorrow. We are going to the Western Washington State Fair in Puyallup! Yippee-skippee! I'll take a photo of her modeling it! This scarf will completely set off her green eyes and creamy complexion. She is such a yummy girl! :eyebrow:

Hi'ya Mulder! Thanks for the compliments! It is Crystal Palace TAOS. It is almost as soft as Malabrigo! It is 100% wool. Doesn't it even look soft!?

Yes! I sent you a PM! She is adorable! Very nice!

Thanks for the tip! She was located in the ARTISTS IN ACTION under the Grandstands. Other yarn vendors show their stuff, too. Myra had GREAT KITS...however, nothing that I wanted to knit.

It's gorgeous! I think I want one now, but I already have a scarf, plus my mom just knit me one, too, so I don't really need it!
