Le Irish est fini!

Just finished another scarf for the red scarf project. This is the Irish Hiking Scarf with some modification. I added seed stitch borders for two reasons: I just like the look of it, and I wanted it to be a wee bit wider than what the pattern called for. The fiber is Lamb's Pride Worsted in Ruby Red, 2 full skeins. I wet blocked it with some Euclan in the water, but it bled like crazy. I had to rinse three times before the water was clear. The blocking did soften the yarn some, so it isn't quite as itchy as when I was knitting it. Finished size-6"x61". Definitely will be a repeat.
