Branching Out is blocked and done! I finished it at SnB last night. Jess put a cute pic of me wearing it up on her blog, but despite what everyone said, I still think pink is not my color! Besides, I think that the the recipient of this gift will really like it. I used a steam iron to block this, thanks to advice from the blocking, lace, shawl, yarn, and all-around knitting goddess, Jessamyn. I'm glad I didn't have to soak this in water and lay it out to dry, because frankly there is no 70" + of cat-free space in my apartment for this scarf to lay undisturbed until dry.
OK, I'm gonna be honest -- this pattern was a pain in my butt! I mean, it was easy enough as long as you pay attention, and towards the end I kept on paying attention but I always ended up missing 1 stitch in the same row, no matter what. So it's not perfect. But that's what makes it handmade, right? And the recipient won't notice (I hope)!
I just downloaded Firefox, and I think it's kind of cool. Now I'm going to go try and figure out what all the buzz about Dreamweaver is.
