Knitting refresher - Wool Scarf
I decided to refresh my knitting skills while shopping for a gift for my daughter in law, Sarah, at http://www.knittersmercantile.com/. The staff person recommended a pattern by Ann Norling. I made the garter/rib scarf with Lamb's Pride Worsted, 85% wool/15% mohair yarn. The color is one of my favorites, a blue-green, this one is called Persian Peacock.
Sarah helped me with the casting on and reading the directions and adjusting for a wider version. Thanks Sarah, it's great to have a knitting coach in the family. The end result is seen here, a gift for David. He seems very pleased with this warm, warm scarf.
