Lace Leaves Scarf

I decided to make this as my entry in the knitted scarf division at the Lake County Fair. I finished blocking it this morning. I used the Yarn Harlot's suggestion. It saved me from spending an insane amount of money on steel blocking rods. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Watercolor. I loved how the yarn looked on the Yarn Grove's website so I bought it. They offer free shipping so what the heck! I really like how it turned out.

Hi Cris, Your Lace Leaves scarf turned out lovely! Good luck in the Fair. BTW, if you ever do want to get some blocking wires for just pennies, check with your local welding supplier for high grade stainless steel welding rods. I have more articles on blocking in the resources section of my website if you want to read more about this. Keep up the good work and I'll be pulling for you to win!

Happy knitting, Jackie E-S
