Finished Object: Kernel Scarf

17 Aug

kernel scarf Ok, wow this project took me forever. I started it well over a year ago and put it down because I kept screwing up the lace. See this previous post for more backstory. I blocked it this week, and subsequently ordered some blocking wires. It is next to impossible to block lace too much while keeping a straight line using only pins. And I used a lot of pins.

Anyways, more pictures:

The lace just looks fabulous now that it is blocked, no more scrunchie ball of who knows what. This is also my first time beading a project, which looks lovely but the beads I chose were so close in color to the yarn that you really can’t tell they are there until you are up close. This has been one of the most challenging pieces I have done so far (I feel) and I am pretty proud of it!
