Lady Fern Scarf from Hill Country Weavers - DONE!

I'm a Fern fan!

Before blocking
I absolutely LOVE how this turned out.  I think the fringe added just the perfect touch, especially when I combined strands of all three different colors.  It has that marvelous, retro-urban vibe that I associate with Austin, and I’m convinced it will be an accessory favorite of mine.

This was my first experience with a dedicated fiber wash—normally I use just a hint of Dawn Blue—and I’m a convert to Eucalan.  The scent is marvelous, and no rinsing is required.  As promised, the linen softened up considerably after its first bath.  I’m really looking forward to wearing this!

The last panel turned out fine!
Speaking of wearing scarves, I’ve gotten many comments about my new Facebook feature, Scarf/Shawl selfies.  I wear some of my knitting almost every day, and here’s a chance for youth see many of the DestiKNITions projects in action.  Click here to visit my Facebook Page, and you can scroll through the recent installments.

Thanks, Hill Country Weavers, for a marvelous project!  Next up, a lovely, lacy cowl from The Knitting Nest.
