year of scarves update #1

Well, it seems that it will be easier to have a plan for this year’s knitting (being the last year of my master’s) that involves a number of semi-mindless but cool patterns.  Hence, the year of scarves.  Everyone will get one for their birthday which totally takes me off the hook for Christmas knitting.  ;)

First up, Dad’s “Un-Noro Striped Scarf.”  He probably wouldn’t like the Noro, and I just plain can’t afford it at the moment, so I’m making this with two colours of self-striping Patons.  The effect isn’t quite the same as the Noro, but I like it and I think Dad will too.
