I've just cut off the first Blooming Leaf scarf! I wanted to look at it overall, because my initial feeling was that it was too busy, and because I don't have anything large enough to space the fringes well. I like it! What do you think? I still think it's a bit busy, and I sure hope it softens up a bit. It's very stiff. I will twist the fringes and give it a bath and then put it away from my furry friends to keep it pristine. I'd like it to be one of my pieces when I try to jury into the Appalachian Art-Craft Center. Here's hoping!
