Happy St.Patrick’s Day!
I finished it last night!
It took just over a month to complete. I’ll admit, there were a handful of days I didn’t work on it. I hate P.O.T.S. days! But I’m so glad it’s done now! The pattern can be found on Knitty:Flit n Float
The yarn I used is from NH Knitting Mama Farmington Line, color is Philosophy. it is 100% Superwash Merino. What is superwash you ask? It is wool that is treated so it can go in the Washing Machine. OMG, it came out sooooo soft after I washed it! I thought it was soft to begin with…wow.
If you clicked the link for the pattern above, and the one for NH Knitting Mama and searched for the yarn I used, you probably noticed that I used a fingering weight instead of a lace weight. It still came out beautiful!
It’s blocked and dry now.
It was the first time I used my Lace Blocking Wires and Blocking Mats from Knit Picks. (Both were X-Mas presents – Thanks Mimi & honey) Granted, it took a while to run the wire through the edges of the scarf, but sooooo worth it! It would have took FOREVER to pin and measure TRYING to get a straight line!
I actually had to re-pin, and steam block the ruffles.
