While on the loooooooong drive south for the winter I started knitting the above scarf. I wanted something thick and chunky that I could wrap around like a cowl or the infinity scarves that seem to be everywhere right now. I had a skein and a half of a pretty, cream colored fiber and got down to business.
I just used a really simple pattern from Ravelry.com called the Weekend Scarf and knit along to Harry Potter audiobooks (Now the husband wants me to knit him some scarves in the house colors : ).
I really like the color and warmth of the scarf, but it’s super scratchy. I wasn’t sure what the fiber was because it was a gift from a friend, but guessing by the itchiness it’s wool. At least it’s warm!
