I finished another thing!

The cable scarf I started over winter break!

I finally finished it, and I stayed up till three in the morning adding fringe and weaving in ends. It looked great, but there was one problem. The edges kept folding in! It makes it impossible to see the whole pattern. So I decided to block it because I've heard that blocking knitting helps fix the shape of the thing. So I got it wet, pinned it to a garbage bag on my carpet (see above), and let it sit there for a while. Today I thought it was dry enough so I unpinned it and the edges CURLED RIGHT BACK UP. Blurg!

See? I have to hold the edges flat or else they fold.
Uncool, scarf.
