Turtle neck

The weather's so chilly I finally have reason to wear this scarf! I knitted it over winter break out of two kinds of yarn. The pattern looks complicated, but once you get a hang of the diagonals it becomes quite easy. I made one long strip and then sewed the two ends together to make a circle scarf.

i love the chunky softness, and for any knitter out there: the thicker the yarn, the quicker the stitch

I can't believe you knitted that yourself! Amazing! I've tried to knit once, but had to start over and over again, until I eventually gave up!

No way! You knitted that? Tres chic! My grandmother taught me how to knot a while back but I've never gotten very far. It's snowing here so maybe I'll pick my needles back up. Love the blog, and I'm all about bargainsssss, it's like my sport seriously.
