Hooray! Finally! And frankly just in time since it finished blocking approximately one hour before we left for our holiday.
Before blocking, I gave up knitting at what I think was 64 inches, so it was a bit short of the goal of six feet. The yarn (DROPS Karisma) was also a bit worrying with its scratchiness, but I’d been assured that would change in the wash.
After a run through the washing machine, not only was the yarn approximately 8 billion times softer but it’d also grown so much that six feet was easily achieved with only the lightest of blocking. Even I could probably wear that against my neck now, and I’m notoriously sensitive to scratchiness around there.
To celebrate the completion of a scarf that managed to take over a year, here’s some more Iceland.
