Calorie-free Chocolate gift for a friend

Yarn from a Ravelry destash.
Crest of the Wave Scarf.
The Plucky Knitter ~ The Stables colourway.
400 yards Merino Seacell fingering in delicious browns.
This is one of those knits that will bloom after blocking.

I'm off to my favourite quilt and yarn shops tomorrow with Dawn. We'll try to not do too much damage but lace blocking wires are at the top of my list. And perhaps a few fat quarters for Nicole's new quilt...

Wishing you all a sweet and wonderful Valentine's ~ although I don't believe you should tell those you love that you love them only on a dictated day ~ tell them every day!!

Love that pattern - it's new to me and that's hard to achieve - LOL

I love yarns that bloom with washing :)

What a gorgeous sweater - thank you for sharing your modifications - I am between sizes also and often wonder how to make it work. A nice toffee brown would be pretty! Nice work!
