I had a change of heart...



I decided after I had knit about 5 or 6 inches of my Backyard Leaves scarf that I wasn't liking the look. So it got tossed into the frog pond. I plan on making one someday, it's a great pattern, but not when I have a deadline! I did decide on a new yarn and pattern, Rio de la Plata and My So Called Scarf, and cast on last weekend. This is much better!!! It has been so fun looking at what everyone is making. It's all so unique and different! I can't wait to see what shows up in my mailbox!

I love this pattern, it's even better in real life. It looks like it's woven rather than knitted.

The scarf is beautiful... I love the mottled coloring!

I'm impressed you're doing this one on a deadline. While the stitch pattern is easy to memorize, it takes me so long to do... at least in Manos (I think it's because the large needles have such a long taper. I did one for my sister, but used a totally different yarn and smaller needles, and it was much easier to make progress... but for what I had in mind for me, I really wanted the look of the Manos).

I keep seeing this scarf pattern and just love it. I especially love it when it's done in bright colorful yarn! Nice job on yours!
