if someone hasn't already done it (or you can actually go to my ravelry page if you are on there yet...name's the same) I will post pics of my Danica (from knitty) scarves done in the SWS yarns. They look awesome with way less work involved than there is with all the Danica color changes. They magically seem to fall almost perfect with SWS.
As far as blocking goes, that is completely preference. I rarely block scarves unless they are for a gift. I can say that my danica went from about 4 inches wide to about 8 inches wide when i blocked it and it is way longer than it would seem without the blocking. HOWEVER, I really do like the unblocked look of that scarf too so it is really all just preference.
You can call me Brenda No Help today :teehee:
