Greetings - Backyard Leaves and More!

Hello! I'm a new member of this knitalong, although I've had the book Scarf Style for a while and have knit one scarf already. I made the Backyard Leaves Scarf at the beginning of the year, but have yet to block it (I live in Texas, so I don't really urgently need a wool scarf to wear). I did it in Karabella Aurora 8 but used a darker green. Here is how it looks now:

I really like it, but I found like many others did that it needs to be blocked to flatten it a bit and show the pattern. I've been lazy about getting it done, but plan to try and steam block it in the near future.

The next project I'm going to do is Midwest Moonlight, in Debbie Bliss Cathay - I really like the blend of cotton and silk. It has a nice sheen, and I think it would make a nice, cool scarf to wear in Texas. It is going to be a X-mas gift for my (future) Sis-in-law. I can't wait to start!

    Very pretty scarf - I'm glad I'm not the only one who puts off the blocking! I love the color of your new project. It will be a lovely gift.

    Beautiful scarf! That one's going on my list too. You'll love Midwest Moonlight and your yarn will be perfect.

    I'm supposed to block a scarf? Oops!!!!!!!!

    I haven't so far, but maybe it would help show the pattern.

    Good luck
