|My sad-looking Poppy Lace Scarf|
Not because of the pattern, because it's a great one.
It's early demise came from the fact that I really wasn't liking this yarn choice for it. The self-striping sock yarn would be better used in socks, or a scarf that doesn't have a lace pattern to see.
I blocked the scarf last night, and it was dry this morning, so I photographed it and added it to my charity knitting. The blocking didn't lengthen or widen it much, so I think this would be a better size for a child/youth, or just a short scarf to wrap around your neck underneath your coat.
I enjoyed this pattern. I didn't enjoy my yarn choice. In the photos I've seen of this scar done in solid colours, I really loved how it looked. I'll knit this again in the future, however, I'll be using a solid colour next time so that the pattern actually shows up.
Chalk this experience up to trial and error, lessons learned, etc.
