Yay! I finally finished my first Branching Out scarf, after about 3 months of on and off knitting. I weaved in the ends and blocked it; just need to cut off the loose ends. I'm amazed at the difference blocking makes, the pattern definitely shows through after blocking. The scarf is about 6 ft long! This was good practice for me, the lace pattern became easier after several repeats and I can almost anticipate the next stitches by reading my knitting. Now I'm ready to knit this scarf again using nicer yarn. This was fun to knit, I think I might make several more. This scarf was knit with 2 balls of Schoeller Stahl Hobby "plum" color, although I don't think it looks very purpuraceous.
Yarn: Schoeller Stahl Hobby, Plum color. 2 balls
Needles: 5mm (US8)
