When I was finished, the scarf was pretty lumpy bumpy and the holes were all over the place. I haven't been much of a blocker, but this was clearly a case for blocking. I used Soak (I also like Euclin). After blocking, the yarn was so much softer- as if it "relaxed". And it was all nice and flat and the holes are all lined up. It looks and feels soooooo nice, and it even smells nice! I'm now a confirmed blocker! I made a major discovery about blocking. I'm going to do a separate post about blocking- I have a great tip to show you!
The only regret I have about this scarf is that I didn't make it longer. But then... if I wanted to make it longer, I would have had to cast on 450 stitches.... AAAHHHH!!!!!!
I have a little yarn left over. I think I might see if I can get some fingerless mitts out of it to match the scarf.
The weather's warming up- guess I'll have to wait for next winter to wear it!
