Hi'ya!

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.

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!

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!?
