This is a quick follow up to a post I wrote in February 2018 – A Case Against Procrastination.
Experienced knitting blogging buddies: please see the Postscript section for a question/request for advice, thanks!
The title of this post is Interesting as it is obvious that I ended up seriously procrastinated because I finally finished the scarf for this hat I made in December 2017 (Library Stack Catch Up):
Well over 2 years later, the matching scarf is now done:
I could not wait to try them on together the moment I finished the scarf:
However ever as soon as I put it on, I took it off as I could not wear it outside today (without looking very strange) as it is was 52 degrees F (11 degrees C) and that is a little warm for scarf wearing.
It felt wonderful to have this scarf done and I am sure our snow and cold will return this winter in the Denver metropolitan area!
Postscript (Question on Blocking Knits)
Experienced knitters reading this post – tell me about your experiences with blocking scarfs or other knitting pieces.
I used a garter stitch to make this scarf. I used a blend wool-acrylic yarn, and the edges on the scarf curled. So I blocked it after I was done knitting it, just like in this video below:
But after all that work, the edge of my scarf still slightly curl under.
Is it because I used a wool-acrylic blend?
