Can you believe it?

Hi everyone,
Can you believe it, this is my first knit-along? Woohoo! I've been working on the Backyard Leaves Scarf from the book, and I think the designer, Annie Modesitt, is SO clever. Anyone else notice the neat-looking border on this scarf? I'm glad I don't have to decide on a selvedge, she's got it all spelled out. Here are some pictures:



So, I'm knitting my scarf in elann's 100% alpaca, color #1349 antique rose. It's been going very well, in fact, I'm about 85% done at this point, just a few more repeats. I'm a little nervous about blocking alpaca, since I understand I might have to steam it. Any advice? Nice meeting all of you!

    Hi Kathy!
    Looks great so far! I have to tell you that I just LOVE the "Knitting Relationship Stages" from your blog! I have to send that to my DH so he understands why I'm in Stage 5 so often!
