I finished my other leaf-themed knitting project: Saroyan, the scarf-ish shawllette!I’m pleased with how this project came out. It’s somewhere between a tapered scarf and a shawl, which is great because I didn’t quite know what I wanted. I just wanted leaves.
My earlier hunch that light gray would be a good color for this pattern ended up being correct— the leaf edge stands out really well.
The only modifications I made were adding two extra repeats in the middle section to make it a wee bit longer. I definitely made some small errors in a few places, but they’re not visible unless you are me so I will spare you the details.
My friend Sarah was nice enough to take a these photos of me wearing Saroyan. Which was awesome. (This must be what an actual photo shoot for a knitting magazine feels like).
As it turns out, all of her candid shots (when I did not think she was taking a photo) were way better than the ones where I was posing! Well, except for this one I took, which I mainly include so you can see the leaf earrings I was wearing. That is all.
