Ruffles Ruffles

Dear Kristel,

I have your address. I need to carry it and your scarf around with me before I pop it in the post. For some reason this step has to be fulfilled.
The yarn was lovely to knit with and I think I'll knit a pair of socks with the skein you gave me. I am of two minds about the sock thing. I love the idea of having beautiful socks. I don't love the idea of falling in love with a new time consuming skill.

Thank you goes out to all the bloggers who knit lovely things. I am always inspired and motivated by the quality and creativity.

This was lots of fun.


A later edit:

To answer the blocking question. I laid the scarf out on my ironing board to look like a slinky, and I steamed it. It helped to true the short rows.

here is a side view:

Your Ruffles looks beautiful! As I near completion on mine, I have to ask: did you block yours and if so what did you do!

Ooh, that's a clever way to block it! :D I wouldn't have thought of that.

The scarf was looking like spinach pasta before I blocked it! Now it is romantic, feminine and ruffly!

Brilliant! Thanks for posting pictures of the blocking process--I did not think of that!
