Amazing what a bit of laundering does.
Here is the finished throw after it was fulled, dried and pressed. It drapes like a dream and is soft as can be. The colors also changed, they muted some and kind of blended into themselves. The recipient aka DH loved it too!
On the other hand, the ugly socks turned even uglier. For whatever reason the skein had an odd color sequence. The second sock has the "right" sequence. The first one had an odd black stripe in there. By the time I realized that the first one was "wrong" it was too late. I do not like the yarn so it will not get ripped or reknit. House socks or boot socks or just socks for warm toes.
The yarn for the English Ribbing scarf was not enough. More is on the wheel.
