Project Spectrum

I read about Project Spectrum a couple of weeks ago, and thought it was a great idea, but figured I couldn't really join just yet, due to the fact that I'm not allowed to cast on any new projects, and therefore wouldn't be able to knit anything pink or red for March. However, I realized, in a stroke of brilliance, that I had this lovely bit of knitting already on the needles!
So, I promptly signed myself up and got back to this scarf. I started this beauty over a year ago, and it's just been lanquishing in a bag next to my desk at work. I'm not sure why - it's soft, I love the color (who doesn't love red on grey days, of which we have plenty?), it's on size 15 needles with drop stitches so it flies along, etc. Just a few hours of concerted effort and several back episodes of The Daily Show and voila...another FO!

Specs: Red drop-stitch scarf

Pattern: Made up as I went along

Yarn: 2 skeins Gerifil Filati Fantasia

Needles: Clover bamboo, size 15

Time to completion: Let's not go there

I also swatched the Kool-aid dyed yarn and I really like the way it came out - now I just have to figure out what to do with it (after Easter of course)...

Oh, I like the way your Kool-aid dyed yarn turned out.
