What are you most proud of? That I took a chance on a new technique and committed to make this scarf for a silent auction fundraiser, and got it done in 10 days! Thanks Patty-you are the best!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient with yourself, take your time, and enjoy! Swatching and Blocking really really matters!

Gaire Cara on craftsy.com

Perfection! I hope the auction went well. I would certainly have bid! Did you block it in sections or do you have a method or set-up that accommodates a long piece? I agree; Patty's the best.

Bette, I blocked it all once. I had enough space on top of my washer and dryer using stacked towels. I needed something at that height and it was a perfect fit!
