I have just finished the Spiral Scarf. This is my third project from Knitting Nature (but it's the second to be finished!)
The scarf is composed of 15 hexagons that make a spiral shape. I ran out of time, and made 12, but I don't think the last three tiny hexagons wuld make much of a difference. I changed from 1x1 ribbing to stockinette, because the yarn didn't look good in rib stitch. This modification was a BIG mistake, as the stockinette stitc make the edges curl, and I believe ribbing wouldn't curl like that. I have wetblocked it for 36 hours, but it's not entirely flat. Lovely as it is, I don't think this yarn was the best choice for the pattern. A lighter, more drapy yarn would have been better. It was a really, really quick knit. I had some minor surgery done on my arm that caused knitting discomfort, and then I lost a day to migraines, but I still managed to finish it in five days.
