FO: Scarf
Hey all! This is the first finished object I've ever posted here. This scarf was the first 'lace' project I'd ever finished and the first thing I've ever blocked. I only had one ball of yarn so it's a little short, but I learned you can really get a lot of stretch out of stuff by blocking!

Pattern: I adapted this pattern - I think I cast on 24 stitches insteaad of 18 and I used much smaller needles (maybe size 8?). Very easy and reversible and I thought it looks nice with the prett self-striping yarn. I think it's interesting that my scarf looks so different than the one shown with the pattern.

Yarn: Rowan Tapestry (Rustic color)

I definitely still have a lot to learn though - on one side of the scarf you can see how the edge is a little 'wavy' from being pinned to my ironing board. I think I need to use a stiffer sort of string to weave through each side for blocking and maybe pin the scarf to the bed instead of the ironing board next time. I also had trouble weaving in the ends (which you can see in the second picture) but I think I finally got them to stay by trying to 'hand felt' the ends into the scarf between my fingers. If they poke out again I'll go try to find some FrayStop.

That's very pretty. On my computer it looks like fall colors, which are my favorite.

Deb,

Thanks! Yes it is definitely a really pretty fall-looking yarn - I think (like most things) it's prettier yarn in person than on my monitor.
