My friend Lisa's been crocheting the Alpine Frost Scarf, by Amy O'Neill Houck from the Winter 2008 issue of IC, for ages now. She's not quite done yet, but she brought it over to my house last week to use my blocking board. By blocking most of what she's crocheted so far, she can figure out how much longer she wants the scarf to be. (Also, the scarf is already too long to be blocked in its entirety on the board.)
I snapped this photo of the partly blocked scarf so you can see how dramatically blocking affects lace.
Now I'm remembering how much I love this scarf. I must make one someday.
(And it's red! Perfect for Canada Day! Happy Canada Day!)
