The Rose headscarf is finished!

Because I derive much amusement from this, pre-blocking...

Where you can see how the changes in stitches pull the fabric into bumps and valleys.

And post-blocking...

And how the blocking pulls it all flat and brings out the pattern.

I made up the pattern, using the Ostrich Plume lace pattern from Barbara Walker's Treasury. Yarn is some rose-coloured hand-dyed merino by Robyn at ReBelle.

Other knitting news, I'm swatching for some socks.

Mom really liked this colorway of Noro Iro (70), so I grabbed a skein and knit her this seed stitch cowl.
