Fuchsia Lace

I finally took my scarf off the blocking pad...and here it is! I'm very pleased with how this came out, and I have to say I'm rather proud of it. :o)

It blocked nicely too. Here you can see the scalloped edges, which is a feature I love about it. And the blocking helped the scallops at the ends, which didn't naturally want to scallop as much.

Whew - I thought your comments section wasn't working! I've had trouble posting. I love the Flower Power socks, and like you, the brown is what holds me back....
Also, the scarf is just gorgeous! Lovely color!
Wish you could come to MD Sheep and Wool, sure you don't want to hitch a ride????

The scarf is really pretty. Shorter is probably better! I keep making mine too long. Grr.
