Scarftastic

Hot on the heels on one gift scarf comes another. A rather fine one if I do say so myself.Pattern: My So Called Scarf cast on 40 stitches
Yarn: 3 skeins of Manos del Uruguay; shade 6709
I used long sections of alternating two rows and carrying the yarn up the edge to introduce the new skeins because of the striking differences in colour from one skein to another. 3 skeins makes a really big, handsome scarf.
Needles: 8mm Wooden Straights
Started: 28 December 2007
Finished: 26 January 2008
Notes: It was a good job I didn't get too far on the secret knitting of this 'Christmas' present as when I showed the beloved the couple of inches I'd managed he requested it be made wider. Maybe surprise gifts should be banned! I'm pleased with the final size of this - a manly scarf. Took some knitting but already worth it to see how pleased the recipient is.
