I finished a scarf!

It's knitted out of four different yarns: shetland wool, kid mohair, tussah silk/wool (all hand dyed) and recycled silk. Each row is a separate piece of yarn that's tied to the previous row (this forms the fringe). I got the yarns at the Mendocino County Wool and Fiber Festival in September.

Instructions for the scarf are in The Knitting Experience: Book 1 The Knit Stitch. As a beginning knitter, I like this book's instructional design a lot and I think a lot of the projects are really attractive looking (but large sizes for the clothing projects aren't given, phooey). The only thing I could do without is the author's blathering on about how knitting is spiritual and meditative and will "change your life." I do understand what she's saying but...can't people just have hobbies any more?
