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?

Here it's sitting on the cat condo next to my computer.

The OH took some pictures of it on me. Here's one of the tame ones. :-)

Oh my. That's so lovely it forces "Decadent" and "Practical" to kiss and make up!
