Backyard Leaves Complete :0)
I have completed both halves of Backyard Leaves & they have just about finished the blocking process & I am then left to seem them together. I'm afraid that I had to block it twice because the 1st blocking I stretched it too much & it just seamed to eliminate all of the 3D definition in the design. So I sprayed again & repositioned the scarf so that you can still see the st. defintion with a 3D look...I said it before, I say it again..Annie Modesitt is a genius! I am quite happy with the results, if I may say so myself! Last night I cast on using smaller size needles for the hat & will (LOL, as I usually do) make it up as I go along as I make the hat, then fingerless gloves and a small clutch to match. I'm very happy that I found that I had so much yarn..YIPPEE!
Almost forgot, the pictures are of the 2 halves blocking with a couple of photos of the detail.
Happy Holidays & Happy Knitting Everyone
