Before Work & After Work

This morning the sun was rising when we were on the way to work and the sky was really beautiful. My husband, who drives like a lunatic at the best of times, was driving this morning (of course) so the picture I took isn't of the highest quality but still pretty.


I know I am milking the ISE scarf for all it is worth but alas, that is what we do here in knitting blog land. We relish the minutiae.

So, today's addition of tedious details: Blocking pictures.

I know this close-up pictures isn't the best and is kind of dark but I love that it shows the pattern. This picture portrays the pattern more accurately.

My "blocking board" is a doctored up foam board wrapped in a towel so it is too short to do the whole scarf at once. So here are the two ends and later I will do the middle.

Again, it's just a great pattern. Is it someones, or did you just figure out a nice cable pattern?

Pretty sky picture.

Love how the scarf came out. So pretty. Now I really need to get moving on mine since it is no where near as complicated as yours and I'm still not done.

Finish the black dishcloth,. finish the scarf, finish the Grandmother Purl squares ... I better get off my hinney and get knitting!

Man, that is one good-looking scarf! It looks really great!

And your blocking is impressive. Yoda says: Patience of a saint, you have.
