Here it is! The Phoenix Tears Scarf, completed and given to the recipient. I’m so thrilled to finally have it done. And my friend was thrilled to have it! I’m happy to say that the colors suit her quite well (I knew they would, but having spent so many hours seeing how terrible they look against my skin, I had started to have doubts).
Mods: I ran out of the Fandango before getting to the “curly plume” ruffles at the end, so I had to sub the Silky Chic, held double. It worked out alright, though the ruffles aren’t quite as sturdy as I would have liked, and of course the texture contrast isn’t there anymore. To compensate for the less sturdy ruffles, I only added one bead to each (the beads I bought are glass and rather heavy).
All in all, I’m very pleased with it!
