I'm working on a new scarf design.

I'm trying something new (to me). I've cast on enough stitches to make a scarf, but lengthwise, with scrap yarn. I'm knitting half of the width and casting off. Then I'm knitting up the cast on stitches and going in the other direction. It's a shell-like lace pattern so the pull of the different angles is creating an interesting effect. See pictures of my progress so far here.

Always great to see people putting new twist on old standards. I've done a number of scarves and stoles with a lengthwise caston - and it can make even simple stitch patterns look new and different.

I love how the combination of colors and fibers are combining.  It reminds me of marbled paper or different paints on a palette just starting to get mixed together...I'm looking forward to seeing the finished scarf.
