I was worried that Silk Garden wouldn’t soften up with the wash/rinse process, but it sure did! Yay! It will be pleasant to wear this coming Fall/Winter! I made a cardigan and a hooded jacket using this NORO colorway #84 for our Alaskan cruise back in 2006. This scarf was knit with leftover yarn! Yay!
Used the KnitPicks blocking tiles again! They certainly are handy-dandy. Also used the blocking wires to pull this scarf out to a nice appearance! Scarf dried in an hour! With the blocking wires…you don’t pin the scarf…you pin inside the wires to make them stay put!
