Oh I just love the moment when a project is finally finished, soaked, blocked, dried and at last you take out those pins. Magic!
The finished scarf is very soft and beautifully lightweight; just perfect for those nippy Autumnal days that are almost upon us.
I managed a complete twenty-four row extra repeat from the yarn, which made me smile even more.
Blocking was straightforward, with just a couple of wires up each side and then easing the scarf out to the required measurements.
There is so much subtle colour variation in this pretty yarn. It's really gorgeous, although none of my photos reflect the true beauty or depth of the colour. I tried shots inside and out, sun or shade, but still no luck. It really is a deep, turquoise.................riptide.
The lightness of the yarn meant an overnight dry was all that was required. This morning I gave it a quick steam to encourage the yarn to bloom, left it to air a little longer and then hey presto!
I'm loving it!
