Girl On Fire - Finished!

Hooray, this scarf is finally finished! It's literally been sitting on my computer desk for months asking me to block it. I decided to block this one with "fake" blocking wires, aka a piece of yarn that doesn't stretch pulled very tightly and wrapped around pins. Long story short, I had blocked about 1/3 of it before and hated it, so I reblocked it and it turned out (while not perfect) much better this time.

It's funny, I had a bear of a time photographing this one. It turned out so pretty, but I'm actually not super happy with it. I don't know if it's because it's so drapey yet somewhat stiff (if that makes any sense at all). Maybe it's because orange is just one of my least favorite colors. Honestly though I think it's the fiber I used, definitely not my favorite. I have another 2 skeins of it in a pink color, not sure what I'm going to use it for yet but I won't be buying it again. No worries though :) 

Fortunately I loved the actual stitch pattern and will be knitting it again, hopefully soon after Christmas. I would love to do it in a worsted weight yarn or dk, something bigger than a sock yarn and see how it turns out. I hope you enjoy it! Blessings!

  1. It's beautiful!
    But it's sad you don't like the yarn. Maybe you can gift it to someone?
