Branching Out Scarf QUICK QUESTION!
Hi ya!

I cast on for Branching Out Scarf last night...worked one 18 row repeat...ACK.

All of the Branching Out scarves I have seen here at the KH ranch have been sooooo beautiful and polished looking!

Here is my question:

Did your Branching Out scarf look all wonky until after the blocking process??? Did the blocking process tame the design and smooth it out?

My Branching Out looked (yeah, I frogged it) all wonky and distorted. Especially the "Knit 3 Togethers".

Is it my yarn? Or is this normal??

I want to knit this scarf with some gorgeous stash yarn I have left over from my OPAL cardigan. I want to wear it with it.

Anyhoo, are there any Branching Out scarf veterans out there who can enlighten me?

Thanks!

Yeah, it will look a bit "wonky" until it is blocked. I wondered about that to when I was making mine.

I haven't knit Branching Out, but other lace items always look wonky until they are blocked.

Thanks for posting this I'm on my second try of it. I didn't get very far without frogging, just started back at it. Maybe i'll stick with it now. It's a little depressing learning all this and then making something that's not very pretty right away !! This is my first lace pattern.

It depends on your particular knitting and wool, try blocking it and see if you like it.

Hi'ya Jeanie! Well, darn. I got so discouraged by the Branching Out scarf...I re-cast on for the Column of Leaves scarf. I am on row 3...having had to frog rows 1 and 2 twice.

Dang. I always get messed up with those yarnovers. Well, I will obviously have to double check EVERY ROW for accuracy before moving on to the next row with any lacy project.

I will knit the Branching Out for sure...and who knows...maybe I'll end up frogging this Column of Leaves...and casting on again for Branching Out!

I love them BOTH so much. I think I should knit Branching Out is Elsebeth's pea green Silky Wool. Another KH sister knit hers in a pea or leaf green, and it looked so way cool!

Well, me and DD are going to the Puyallup Fair in the morning. Couldn't have picked a worse weekend. Both Sat and Sun won't win any beauty pagents! Take your pick.
They are both "Sisty Uglers"!

ArtLady:

I recently started the Branching Out scarf in a beautiful green Grignasco cashmere yarn I found in Charleston SC last year, "on sale", if that even means anything with cashmere. It still cost a bundle.

-Do you know how to use "life lines"?
-It makes more sense to tink rather than frog if you goof up lace and catch it before you go on to the next row.
