Backyard Leaves for Carey
Hi! I made a Backyard Leaves scarf for my sister for Christmas. I made it out of Alpaca with a Twist, 100% alpaca. It is nice and soft, and I was pleased that it turned out so nicely, especially after blocking.
My only "complaint" is that the chart set up row never actually says it is a wrong side row, you have to use your detective skills to figure it out. I banged my head against a wall a few times until I figured that out. After that, it was a pretty straightforward knit, challenging enough to keep me entertained but not so much I would forget where I was.
This was the first time I had knit from a chart, and I was happy with the results. More photos on my blog.
