I did promise.

blocking the branching out scarf

Faced with a serious dearth of blocking pins, I ran a piece of yarn around the edges of the Branching Out scarf, then pinned the yarn to my ironing board using brooch pins (thanks for those, Faith!)

Aaaaaaaaaand . . . done! I made a little knitted flower pin to go with it.

Lawyer’s Wife called to say she loved it. “It’s cream! It’s the perfect color!” she exulted. So I am officially in her good graces, and that is probably a Good Thing.

Oh. And, yeah. I felted some pears.

    The scarf really turned out beautifully! Excellent job of blocking.
    I LOVE those felted pears. I saw them at the SnB last week, but they were being passed around and I didn’t realize that you made them! Gorgeous!
    Happy New Year!

    Ellen B., who really does like you, Ms. Paranoid Dreamer!

    One, um, question though… What does one do with knitted pears?

    One puts loops through their top ends and hangs them from festive trees. If one is me, anyhow.
