Knitting Notes

Pattern: Kernel Scarf by Bonnie Sennott from Knitty Fall 2009
Yarn: String Theory Caper Sock in the Labradorite colorway
Needles: Size 4 Circs

This post is well overdue, considering I finished this scarf in April. It's been sitting on my desk, waiting to be blocked, and since it isn't exactly scarf wearing weather, it hasn't been high on my priority list. But, we're having company shortly, and my desk had reached epic levels of clutter, so I blocked it today as part of my general desk cleaning compaign.

Unblocked is on the left, and blocked on the right.

Blocking definitely opened up the lace pattern, but more importantly, made the scarf a more wearable length. Pre-blocking, it was pretty much at pin it with a shawl pin to keep around my neck length. I can now actually wrap it around my neck.
