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)...
