Thanks to my daughter and son-in-law cooking Christmas dinner for me, I managed to finish this FOR MYSELF on Christmas Day. I was weaving in the ends while they were cooking dinner!
This is the most beautiful, vibrant yarn -- a gift from three dear friends. When I saw the yarn, it just spoke to me and said "ripple scarf". So I went on line and found the pattern.
There was quite a bit of yarn left over once the scarf was at a good length, so I decided to make myself a hat as well. I've never done Fair Isle type knitting before and have really never been interested in it. But this pattern seemed just right for the colors I had left (+ another stash yarn). And I must say, I'm finding the multi-color knitting to be fun!
Interesting how the colors don't look quite as vibrant with the beige worked in, but it will make a great ensemble all the same, I think.
Better work on getting it done; we've got some cold weather predicted!
