here is the scarf i just finished for my son for christmas (modeled by my husband in the photos below). a simple K3P3 pattern that, i think, turned out beautifully. knit in one of my favorite yarns ever - lorna's laces lion and lamb, a gorgeously soft and luxurious 50% silk/50% wool. i had two partial skeins in two different variegated blues and i just alternated them every few rows. the finished length of this scarf is 6'2" long - just perfect for my tall boy.
details on my ravelry page here. one more christmas present done. :) happy holiday knitting to everyone!
p.s. during the next few weeks, expect a lot of knitting project posts from me as i try to finish up my christmas knitting list. :)
