Another FO - Branching Out Scarf
Yes, I've been busy...obviously enjoying my time off from school.

I made this for a friend. Some of you may remember that I made this scarf last year. Be careful when you show off your stuff. My friend just loved it and wanted me to make her one with the extra skein of yarn I had purchased. Since she made my daughter a soccer scrapbook for her birthday, I thought it was only fair.

Here is the pattern. The yarn I used was Elsebeth Lavold, silky wool, and the color is Moss (as recommended by the pattern).

My friend wants to use the scarf as a table runner, so I made it 40", per her request. It seemed a little short when I cast off, but when I gave it to her today, and she put it on her table, it was perfect.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, you really have been busy. I love the branching out scarf and what a great idea to use it as a table runner. Must try that! You did a lovely job on it.

I really like that, and using it for a table runner is pure genius.

What a good friend you are!

Thanks, y'all! For those of you contemplating it but are intimidated, go for it! The first repeat is not super easy, but once you get a feel for the pattern, it absolutely flies!
