Blocking Branching

Here it is, my Branching Out scarf, in baby alpaca & silk, blocked on my bedroom floor. It grew! It's a fair bit longer now than BW (Before Water). And the pattern is much easier to see - so pretty!

I used 2 balls of Oro Inca 70% baby alpaca, 30% silk (made in Peru) from The Alpaca Centre in Berrima. I don't know if they still stock it - I bought it in July 2006.

  4. Sheep Rustler - I have a husband with ADHD and a bit of Asperger's, son with mild Asperger's, and daughter with ADHD. What can I say? Life is somewhat STRESSFUL AT TIMES. I'm sure you can relate! Knitting is GOOD therapy (cheaper than a psychologist - well, mostly ;)

    And Kuka - thanks for the link to the i-cord tutorial, will check it out quick smart :)
