As mentioned in a previous post it's from the Crochet Noro book. Its a beautiful book, every single project in it is divine, the pictures are glorious, it makes you want to rush out and buy as much yarn as you can get your hands on (nothing new there then).
Look how crinkly the scarf looked before blocking ....
Here it is pinned out on my blocking boards. I use those foam tile things for kids, you know the ones you can join together, my lot make hopscotch with them in the garden. Don't worry, they aren't muddy, I bought myself a whole pack Just. For. Blocking.
I love how blocking transforms something from a shrivelled up mess into a gorgeous piece of gorgeousness :)
It is a tad (ie a LoT) longer after blocking than I'd anticipated, however I do think that for a scarf it is better to err on the side of too long. Nothing worse than a short scarf, is there.
The scarf is a present for Little Man's mentor, Mrs W. Mrs W. has been so good with him this year, hubby and I are so grateful. She deserves a medal but hopefully a scarf is even better. I hope she likes it :)
