Yes, Blocking Works Wonders

The scarf now passes my test for giftworthiness, I want to keep it.  This lacy, girly, useless scarf will be sent off to a lady soldier in Afghanistan as soon as I get my act together.

I'm feeling a bit druzy...

This is the last of my March Madness jewelry making binge, and one of my favorites too.  The chain is pretty long so it makes for a dramatic touch and the heavy quartz blob could be used for self defense in a pinch.

Scarf In Progress

This  bad boy is currently weighing in at 1.5 balls of Rowan Damask.  I'm a bit concerned about the finished product because the yarn loops that are intended to look graceful and lacy keep catching on my fingers and other ungainly protuberances, resulting in a pulled out, shaggy looking mess.  Maybe with blocking...  we shal see.
