It took me a very long time to decide what scarf to make. I finally settled on the Branching Out scarf pattern from Knitty. I went to a yarn store that just recently opened in my neighborhood...I'm thrilled that I can walk to a yarn store :) ...and got some Cascade Cloud 9. This must be a new yarn, right? It is light and fluffy and pretty soft. I'm making 2 halves and grafting them together so the leaves fall down on both ends of the scarf. (I can't remember where I read that tip.) I'm further along than what is pictured here, so don't worry, it'll be in the post by the deadline.
