Well, this is embarrassing. This scarf has been done for something like two months, and I just got around to blocking it last week. It took a while to dry - thanks, shitty Seattle weather! - but the resulting fabric is light and soft and I'm a little obsessed with it. Since Lumberjack had a day off of work yesterday, we got a ton of finished object photos of this and several other projects. Yay!
This was my first time working with Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (although I've stashed a bit of it since then!) and I have to say, it's one of my favorite yarns I've ever worked with. It's rustic and wooly and even a little bit scratchy, but it is so light and fluffy, and the colors are so amazing, that it is super fun to knit up. This was also the first pattern I ever purchased from Jared Flood's pattern support line. I did make some little changes, which I've noted on the Ravelry project page. I would have appreciated some extra guidance on the special cast-on and bind-off, even a link to a tutorial. The tutorials I ended up using are in my pattern notes if anyone wants to check them out.
Even though right now is sort of a silly time to finish a scarf, I expect that this will get lots of wear in the fall and winter. It's really long and light, which I think will be great for bundling up in when the weather gets cold.
