I started the Lead or Follow Scarf tonight. The yarn is Zephyr in Admiral, which has a bit more purple in it than the picture shows. It's got a nice sheen to it, but it's not as soft as I would like. I haven't tried washing it yet, but I bet that it will soften up a bit after blocking.

I used the backwards loop cast on, which is really great for this pattern. The cast on edge is pretty much invisible, and it matches up with the tension perfectly, so it will stretch nicely. I'm sure I'll have to try the blocking with string method, as the bottom edge is supposed to be straight across.
