I had a grand plan for a skein of Wollmeise in Skarabaeus. It was going to be a wonderful, versatile Mizzle. Just the thing to lift up my rather drab winter wardrobe. Instead, I have a daft, skimpy cape. I made it following the modifications proposed in this Ravelry project.
Please excuse the bathroom photos – it’s a rather dark, windy day here. Hopefully the self-portrait will convey the extent of the problem that I have with the proportions of this scarf. The colours are more accurate in the second photo.
Should I bother blocking it? I don’t think that it will dramatically change the dimensions into a dramatically drapey flattering garment, but maybe I’m wrong? I have about 40 grams of yarn left, and am inclined to just rip back the whole garment, and make an Augustine shawlette. Does anyone have a better suggestion for the yarn? It is pooling a lot, so something with some texture, or at the least garter stitch is required….
