Mollie's scarf

That bad boy's done. Come see my work.

You know I didn't use a flash so the color is somewhat off. The scarf isn't this pink - actually it's a deep maroonish red with deep brown/black flecks in it. My wall isn't that mustardy colored either. My sofa, however, actually is that beige. You can't hurt beige with bad lighting.

Here's a close-up of the basketweave stitch pattern. Very fun to knit.

My boyfriend couldn't be happier that I'm finally finished with Mollie's scarf. More time available to devote to him.

Oooooooooo, it's gorgeous. Can you share the pattern? I have some scarves I need to get working on.

Mollie - enjoy it and keep the Evil One's hands off of it. [vbg]

Barefoot - that's the Mom's Sophisticated Scarf pattern from the Stitch n Bitch Nation book. I used a thinner yarn than the pattern calls for and knit it on 3mm needles instead of the 5mm needles the pattern calls for (which cause it to take forever to knit) and I added fringe 'cause fringe just goes with scarves.
