Hi everyone,

Well, I finished my Backyard Leaves scarf from the book, and I love it! I have a question for all you Backyard Leaves knitters - do you think it's weird that without hesitation I wanted to make my scarf pink or red or rose? As far as I can tell, all of you made your BL scarves in green shades... I love this scarf and pattern so much, that I'm going to make another one for a friend! Do you think this one will be green? ;) Nope, it will be raspberry-colored! Here are the pictures:

That's me, sporting my new scarf

More details about yarn, finished size, blocking, etc., can be found on my website.

I'll keep you updated on the progress of my second Backyard Leaves.

    You must be a glutton for punishment. I'm enjoying my second half of backyard leaves MUCH more. My next project is to finish the blizzard shawl, then to do the ever famous clapotis!! I think finding a variegated yarn with autumn colors would be nice for this one. Combination of oranges, yellows, reds, greens and browns. Maybe a Noro yarn?

    It looks great. I love the raspberry color. I made mine green because I had leftover yarn from another project. And I love green. :)

    That is absolutely gorgeous! I think I'll make mine in pink, too.

    I'm so happy to see that you girls are making it in non-green! Chocolate brown, pink, rose, raspberry, I dig it all!

    By the way, it's not that I have anything against green, other than it matches my skin and makes me look even more pale and sickly-looking than I already am :-P. Oh, and I love all colors in the "red" family. The choice was clear!

    I love the ends! I had no idea that the scarf did that, and that alone makes me want to knit it.
