Could you write a pattern for that? I'd love to make one of those.
I sent you a PM, Mason...detailing our options. Let me know!
Glad you like the scarf! Would it be for you? I see it as a very manly
scarf actually!

BLOCKING WITH WIRES

Hi Momwolf!

Here is a photo of blocking wires, and I am also sending you a couple additional closeup photos that show how they are used.

Blocking wires thread into the edge stitch, especially along the straight edges! It keeps an even, clean edge...and eliminates hours of pinning and pinning! My spares are laying across the top of my Central Park Hoodie. I took this photo for someone else over at the Ravelry CPH-KAL.




See them here, where I am pointing?



Here was my Viking Knits Cable Scarf, drying on the blocking board. You can't see the wires real well because the color blends with the scarf!


Blocking wires are not expensive, however, they do best when used along with the blocking board, or something else that will allow you to "nail down" the wires. This scarf is 48" long...and I pulled it out wide to shape the curves of the middle Viking cables...so I used more pins to secure the wires. At no time did I pin the scarf itself. Only the wires. Places like Patternworks.com and et all...sell the blocking boards and blocking wires sell separately.

Hope this helps!

Oh my, I am done in by the beauty of that scarf! The colorway IS fabulous, and your work just amazing!

What could we do to get you to write up your patterns and sell them somehow? I may never make it, but would be happy looking at the photographs.

Once again, AL, your artistry amazes me!

Oh, what a lovely, lovely scarf! I knew you had started it and I've been waiting for pictures of the finished scarf! The colorway is absolutely perfect for the pattern, and I love the way the color changes make the scarf appear wavy at times. It's just beautiful!
