I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear. -Rosa Parks

Yarn: Schaefer Elaine in the Rosa Parks colorway

Pattern: Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf Pattern

Needles: Size 13 clover circulars I dug out of the stash from somewhere

And oh my goodness, so much fun! This scarf went fast fast fast and is pretty pretty pretty and warm warm warm. So different from the other scarves I did this summer huh? But I love it, fun pattern, gorgeous yarn, near instant gratification. And the yarn is that yarn that comes in one big fat skein so I just love the simplicity of it. One skein of yarn, the pattern you can memorize in just a few rows, very cool. It would be totally ideal for a quick but very impressive handknit Christmas gift. Only problem? I already knit my Christmas scarves for the scarf people! Now I need to do socks. Oh well, I guess if I want to make this again I'll just have to keep it for myself! :)

Absolutely beautiful! I ran into a spot of trouble with my multi-directional scarf on my way home from Italy. My knitting needles were confiscated by the airport security people. At least they spared the yarn. Hopefully I can rip it down a bit and reinsert the needles (not my strong suit).
