That scarf

I was going to post this in a reply to an earlier post, but I figured that I may as well just make a new post out of it ^__^ I think I'll probably go with a pseudo-ribbed scarf. There's a pattern at that I might modify and use . It's 17 stitches done in K2, P1. I'm not going to use as gigantic needles as they call for (size 17!!), or do it with two strands of yarn together either. I think I'll just try knitting some of it up to see how it looks. If it looks like crap, I'll just frog it and try something else. I just don't have a good concept of what the mohair will look like in that pattern.

I'm also working on some wrist warmers for Jamie right now. They're the guys ones out of the "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" book. I've finished one already and am working on the second. When they're done, maybe I'll see if he'd be so kind as to model them for me! LOL!!! I still need to get yarn for those beer cozies I promised my friend Aaron. I haven't designed the lettering yet either. *sheepish grin* And this was supposed to be a Christmas present!

I think the pseudo-rib would look cool. But I guess you'll have to try it out for yourself before really deciding. Why can't knitting inspiration strike when we want it to? =)

What yarn are you making Jamie's wrist warmers out of?

I'm using the leftover Mission Falls stuff from the first kitty hat that I made. I offered him the Noro (gasp!), but he didn't want it (phew!)

I'll take some pictures of what I've got of that scarf so far. I'm not too sure what I think of it right now. The pattern on one side looks okay...but the pattern on the other side looks pretty bad. I'm not sure if I should just keep going, or try something else. Do you think it would work if I used the multidirectional scarf pattern? I don't know if the yarn is variagated enough to really work though.
