yeah, i'm a knitting, football-watching fiend. deal with it, suckers.
so i combined the my so called scarf pattern with the scholar collar concept and got this. i think i'm a little in love, and i also think i might make, oh, 10 more or so. if you need a last-minute christmas gift (and you knit, of course), this is the one for you.
needles: US 11
yarn: moda dea tweedle dee in surf and turf
patterns: my so called scarf and scholar collar
and here it is, 95% done.
i think the sister-in-law will get this one. my brother and SIL quit their jobs at the beginning of october (at microsoft) and decided to travel the country for a year. they'll be in the midwest for thanksgiving, out to maine and back to the midwest at christmastime, then be ski bums in breckenridge from january on. jealous much? yeah, yes, i am. however, since everything they own is in their car, i don't want to give them "stuff" that's bulky or unusable. i think this is the perfect solution - cozy, useful, yet not full-scarf-sized, so it's still easy to pack.
did i mention i'm jealous?
