FO: Alison's Scarf
Yay!! Anothe FO!! Here is Alison's Scarf by Annie Modesitt in Karaoke Mermaid (2 balls) (see pattern link in my signature, and when I remove that, it will remain in my blog here ...





I *loved* the i-cord cast-on for this scarf. Using it w/ the slip-stitch border & i-cord cast-off makes such a nice "frame" for the scarf. I'll be using it again.

Well, I expected the yarn to be soft, but I wrapped this around my bare neck last night after I finished it, and I found it to be ever so slightly itchy. I've washed it in Soak, and it's drying right now. I'll let you know what the softness factor is when it's dry.

I will add that I washed my merino Moebius in this same stuff, and I'm a little disappointed in how it feels. I think I'll go to the LYS later & see what they have that might up the softness.

Regardless -- thanks for the kudos, Jan & Sara!!!
