I wanted to keep some of the shape of the leaves instead of blocking them flat.I could've easily left out a couple of the leaf repeats as it turned out a bit longer than I would've liked but I'm still thrilled with it. I've knit a couple of scarves from this book and have more on my list. It's one of my favorites.
Karabella Aurora 8 - 4 balls - Olive

Iron is set on steam and held about an inch above the garment while pins and sons hold and stretch into shape.
While it called for a steam block, I definitely think it would benefit from a more thorough wet block. This shawlette is so clearly "not me" that I felt silly even modeling it... but it will be lovely on my MIL and perfect for keeping the winter chill off her neck.

Now on with my day...
BTW - What's the best way to use Flickr with Blogger. I get very inconsistent results trying to use the Blogger Uploader (the li'l picture button) so I often end up having to use the direct html link. Thanks.
