Finished Diamond Fantasy! Woot! I ran out of yarn (I think my skein was more’n a few yards short) and I don’t know how to do the icord cast off thing and really didn’t have enough yarn to do it anyway, so…. I kinda winged the top so that I’d be able to get it bound off. I’m not sure if it’s making me happy. We’ll have to see after blocking.

I really hope this thing blocks up bigger. It’s TEENY. I mean, I knew it was going to be on the smallish size because I made the scarf size, but mine does not appear to be as large as the scarf size in the pattern photo. Everyone says blocking is a miracle thing. Lets hope, right? Unblocked it’s large enough to toss over the shoulders. I know it’ll be bigger post blocking but I’m a little worried. I think mentally I was thinking “shawl” even though I was knitting “scarf”. It is very pretty though, and I’m sure it’ll be wonderful and Mom will love it.

So what is the lesson we learned, little buckaroos? Always buy more yarn than you think you’re going to need.

On to the next Christmas present.
