Welcome to the big reveal!! "After" pics! After a very technical blocking process, the magic is revealed.
Actually, I just soak the scarf in a bowl of very warm water, run it through the spin cycle (NOT a full wash cycle) and lay it out on the carpet and smooth it into shape. After drying overnight, the lace just sings! Wowza! I love blocked lace!
Guess what else? FREE PATTERN ALERT! (Ravelry link) www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/textured-shale-sock-yarn-scarf. One skein of Treasured Toes sock yarn (tons of yardage-463 yds/423 meters) makes a gorgeous textured scarf. The best part is NO PURLING either!
