Backyard Leaves

Pattern: Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style by Pam Allen

Malabrigo Kettle Dyed Pure Merino Wool in color "Pink Frost"

Finished: October 5, 2006

This scarf took me forever, but only because I kept putting off the finishing. I seem to recall it took about a week to do the actual knitting, then I put off blocking it for months. I was afraid it would turn out looking like crap, and I was very attached to this yarn and this pattern. I finally blocked it a few weeks ago (and it came out looking great! phew!) and then put off the seaming (it's knit in two pieces and then sewn together at the neck) because I knew it was going to be ugly. Finally sat down to do that today. And while the seam's not as pretty as I would like, I think the finished product is fantastic! Here's hoping my mother-in-law agrees at Christmastime...
