FO: Black Forest stash scarf!
Well I'm really digging up some stash! Yarn that is also way too expensive to let go wasted. Gah! I admit, when we were on vacation back in 2008, I stumbled across a little LYS in a teensy mountain town...and she had the most incredible yarn...and I impulsively bought all the Naturwolle she had. Her little shop was set up in what would be the 'sitting room' of her little cottage on Main Street. At the time, the shop was named The Loose Blue Moose. Now how cute is that! She had me at Hello.

This scarf used up every last gram of the yarn! Now THAT feels good.
(Naturwolle Black Forest Yarn, by Muench Yarns, Germany)

This little 2x2 ribbed scarf, simple as it looks, really kicked my butt. Talk about fussy! Gah!

On a 3rd GO, I finally arrived at a good color scheme and pattern numbers!

Here are my project notes.

This photo is unblocked. 3-1/2" x 55"




I put blocking wires into the side edges of the scarf, pinned it out to 6" x 52"...and lightly misted the scarf. When it's dry I'm hoping it will hold the 6" width. If not, I still don't think it will snap back to the 3-1/2". It will be wider than that.
