Oh, boy, here we are. It's December 1st. T-minus 24 days! Good thing that there's one more holiday knit in the "done" pile. Here's Backyard Leaves laid out after its soak in the sink:
I love how Cascade 220 blocks. It's wool putty in my hands.
I'm very pleased with this scarf, and the pattern was a lot of fun to follow. I thought that the chart's complexity might make knitting on the go difficult, but that wasn't the case at all. If something went wrong, it was visible immediately, and I could tink back to fix it.
Pattern: Backyard Leaves by Annie Modesitt in Scarf Style
Yarn: Cascade 220, 2 skeins
Should you knit this: Yes!!
Thank you for mentioning that the seam in the middle of the scarf is barely noticeable. I guess that you're right. I think that I did an okay job matching leaf to leaf, but the feel of the knitted fabric changes at that point. Maybe I should focus less on the feel and more on the look.
Next up, Midwest Moonlight!
