Lace ribbon scarf for Torie

I've finished the scarf for Tor - from the Lace Ribbon Scarf, Knitty Spring 08 by Veronik Avery.

I did fewer repeats across, and sued some Hipknits laceweight silk I found very wiry, but a beautiful rich pink.

Blocking shots - sorry, I used similar coloured towels to minimise stains! (There was a bit of colour leakage in the wash, and I had pink fingers after blocking though not while knitting). So there's less contrast than might be ideal.

Very nice! It looks so much nicer all blocked out than in the picture in Knitty!
