Little Leaf Stripe Scarf

How's that for alliteration?

I had forgotten how absurdly easy this pattern stitch is. In fact, now that I'm working on it again, I think it's possible that I put it down just because I got bored with it. This may turn out to be "conversational/group knitting", too. Simple or not, I am going to push ahead and finish.

Just to pique my own interest, and to get a better picture of what the finished product might look like, I decided to block on the needle.

I kind of like it. The horizontal stripes in the yarn fight a bit with the vertical lace pattern, but for me, not fatally. And it's one of those projects that shows lace doesn't have to look frou-frou. If it doesn't curl too much after blocking, I'll skip any additional edging. If it does curl, I'll look for something with some openness, but simple.

Ooo! I like that pattern too! With the edge that's on it now, it shouldn't curl too much. I hope not. I like the simplicity!

That's a nice pattern. (She says, and she goes off to hunt up her Barbara Walkers to mark the page...)
