Remember awhile back I started on the Brooke's Column of Leaves Scarf? It's finished, sort of.
The pattern says it needs to be blocked. Being new to lace knitting, I've never blocked anything before. I don't know if it would make much of a difference or not. Here's what it looks like now:
It's about 35 inches long and 6 inches wide. That's not a very long scarf, it's more of a neck warmer, but I just knitted until I used up the skein. It was worsted weight, 220 yards. With the lacey holes, it could probably have a couple of buttons added somewhere to keep it in place. Okay, expert knitters, let's hear your advice!
