I finished up Just Enough Ruffles over the weekend and it came out great! It's folded in half here as it finishes drying and blocking. (Logan was busy running in circles and clearly didn't want to model - he thinks running in circles makes breakfast come faster.) I used Valley Yarns Northampton (Lake Heather colorway) for this and while it felt like a nice standard grade wool while I was knitting (think Cascade 220 or Elann Peruvian Highland Wool), when I washed it, it REALLY softened up! This is going to be such a great scarf and it's done in time for the really cold weather we get here in January and February. (I know those of you up North are laughing and mocking me, but we do the same thing to you when you complain about 80 degrees in the Summer - it's all relative to what you're used to.) I loved the pattern and once you're through the cast on (you have to count) it's really a pretty easy pattern to work up. Now I have a scarf to match my Chimera Mitts!
