The Asheville Scarf from Friends & Fiberworks - Done!

It's easy being green...

I have to say, I really like how the crochet bind off edge came out—very smooth and clean. Totally worth the extra effort. This is a technique I will definitely use again!

Like many hand-dyed fibers, this one required patience in its final soak. It took nearly ten rinses to get the water clear—those deep greens are a stubborn sort, to be sure.
Still, it’s a small price to pay for such gorgeous colors.  I’m already envisioning this with a red sweater for the holidays.

The simple design and generous length make for all kinds of wearing options. Knotted ends, multiple wraps, long and draped—the possibilities go on.

And yes, it softened up nicely.

Thanks, Friends & Fiberworks, for a great knitting adventure!
