Two Mostly Finished Objects

The knitting is done, but they still need to be properly blocked.

First up, we have a lacey mohair scarf that will be donated as a prize for a giveaway at the upcoming women's retreat at church. I gave it a steam block, but I think I want to do a proper blocking to open it up a little more since the yarn is so fuzzy. The pattern is my own - I just used the Arrowhead stitch pattern from the first Barbara Walker Treasury of Knitting Patterns. If anyone is interested in the actual pattern for the scarf, just let me know in the comments and I can type out what I did.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: "Portrait" by Artful Yarns, color 123 "Washington Crossing the Delaware"
Needles: sz 11 Clover straights

Next, we have a finished Diamond Fantasy Shawl (the scarf size)! No blocking done on this yet, obviously...will do that today. Easy knit, love that the border is worked along with the body and the I-cord bind-off, while tedious, is a lovely edging!

Pattern: Diamond Fantasy Shawl by Sivia Harding
Yarn: Briar Rose Fibers Sweet Freedom Superwash (fingering weight)
Needles: US sz 6 Addi Turbos

Watch for blocked pictures soon...
