A Quick F.O.

I finished the Tiers scarf in Shibui Twig a couple of weeks ago. I made ii right under the wire in time for the Shibui Knits KAL deadline. I didn’t win the random drawing, though. 😦   I enjoyed this quick and sophisticated knit. I made this in the Graphite color.

If there’s one thing I learned from knitting Tiers, it’s that I need to invest in a set of blocking wires.  Based on other knitters’ reports on Ravelry, some curling at the edges is unavoidable. The knitters who blocked the hell out of their scarf and used wires had much smoother edges. Sigh. So I placed another order with Jimmy Beans Wool. Any excuse, right?

I’m tempted to make another one in a lighter color, such as Apple. But there are other things already on my needles and in my queue. I’ll add another Tiers in there somewhere…
