Floaty Finished!

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.

But now it is Finished!
