That's a very lovely scarf - warm and beautiful subdued colors. Am about to start a scarf for daughter who is a Valentine Day child and this encourages me.

Lisa

This is absolutely lovely! I agree that sometimes the simplest patterns are the most enjoyable. The yarn is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

You do have to soldier on with a scarf. Do you think that having a child start knitting a scarf is maybe the way to make them swear off knitting? Perhaps a dolly scarf, but a scarf can be a daunting project. However, the end result is handsome. Lucky, Will.

Needles poised just waiting for merino wool! How good to see your finished piece.

When I was taught to knit in eight grade the teacher instructed me to knit a stockinette scarf. It grew to 8 inches before it was abandoned for crocheting a vest. Though I have woven several scarfs, and I like to knit socks, I've yet to knit a scarf.

I am now knitting my very first project, which is also a 2X2 ribbed scarf. It's satisfying because I can still watch TV but still have to pay attention to what I'm doing as I'm new to it. One can't make scarves forever, but not sure what to try next that wouldn't be too advanced...
