Blocking Backyard Leaves
I'm sure someone else has observed this at some point on this blog - but blocking is really important for this scarf.

I love this project... I can't believe it took me so long to knit it. It's going to be a Christmas gift for a friend... but I think I'm going to have to knit one for myself at some point. I highly recommend the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for this scarf - beautifully soft to work with and to wear - and it takes four balls.
