Falling Leaves...er, Backyard Leaves... One of those leaves scarves!


Hello! I finished my Backyard Leaves!

A few notes: Blocking makes a world of difference! When you knit this scarf, it's just going to look weird, until you block it. I actually think it could use a bit more blocking, too. It has a tendency to roll up on itself. Also, it's pretty dang long. You might not want to do all 11 repeats on both sides unless you like really long scarves.

    That is beautiful! Love it. I was wondering about blocking mine too. I'm currently half done, and used an angora/merino blend. I hope it blocks well, because I know what you mean about it looking funny while being knit. :)

    Yes, it sure is long, isn't it? Yours is beautiful! I should be able to post mine later today. Don't know about you, but mine came out even longer than the length as written, which was already long. Long, long, long!
