Huzzah! It’s finished! I think once I got the pattern memorized, it really went quickly. I think that’s what I liked the most about this pattern, it was super easy to memorize the lace. Although, I think I must have read something wrong in the pattern (or blocked it improperly) and it the scarf turned out much longer than it should have. But, really, is that the end of the world? To have a scarf that’s long? Probably not. I also overbought on the yarn, and now have an extra skein. Perhaps that calls for an attempt at socks?
Mom loved it, and is now requesting an afghan in a merlot color. Of course, by the time I get that finished, it will be too warm out to actually need one.
Something else I’ve realized as I’m writing this, I need to learn to use a real camera. iPhone photos are great on your phone, but not so much when you get them on the computer. Perhaps that is user error, though, and not the camera…
Where can I find good tips on how to take photos of your knitting? Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know where you can get one of those foam head things? If you know what I’m talking about? I’m not sure what they’re actually called.
