Both Backyard Leaves finished!

I've finished my second Backyard Leaves scarf, and I'm very happy with how this one turned out, too. I still needed to glance at the chart once in a while, but I found that after making a total of 60 repeats between the two scarves, I could almost knit without it. Here's a picture of the two scarves, side by side:


The first one is antique rose, and the second one is raspberry. I think these scarves look great in non-green!

What's next? I really, really love the way Lady Eleanor looks knit up in Noro. Amelie's and verlit's are particularly gorgeous. The only thing is that I have no use for a shawl... Has anyone modified the Lady Eleanor pattern for a scarf, let's say no wider than 10 inches?

    Dear Jesus,

    Why did you make Backyard Leaves so beautiful? Mine eyes are all achy now.

    Love,
    Brian
