completed scarf - longways caston

Ok, ok - I've been enjoying all your handiworks and thought I'd post a few of my recently completed stuff.

This scarf was a holiday gift for my piano teacher. It doubles as a 'get out of recital free' pass!

I used up some cool bits of my stash - some Manos, a little cashmere, some vintage satin ribbon that faded in the shop window, and some cheap novelty yarn I stumbled across at Tuesday morning.

Cast on longways using 36" size 17 circs, knit flat, plain stockinette stitch.

The only thing I don't really like about this method is that the bindoff side tends to curve a little, even with great care to bindoff loosely.

The above pic is without flash, and shows the colors more truly. The attached one shows more of the detail.

Knit on!
