I've already decided that once my Christmas WIP's are finished, I'm going to make this for my dad. He's a computer programmer. His birthday is in March, so I'll have plenty of time to make it nice and long. I sent him the link and asked if he would wear it with dark green digits. His reply? "I want one."

But gah, it's such a lovely scarf! I think I want one in black and pink!

This is my second fairisle project and I am finding it easy.  If you are not familiar very familiar with fair isle I would NOT do it with 2 strait needles.  To have to purl back in FI is tricky to learn I think.  I'd rather just knit knit knit.  But if your really really opposed to dpns you could do it.  Practice and do a few swatches.  As far as FI goes, this one is SIMPLE.  One color, easy changes, no extended carries.  Easy.

This pattern is so awesome! And I've probably got the yarn to knit this and then some. What IS it about Red Heart? Every now and then I buy some because it's cheap and I'm convinced that I'm going to use it for something and then I never do.
Anyway, I've got some Christmas knitting to do, but I can't wait to see everyone else's progress

I prefer circs for carrying my stuff around, so what cord length would be best for doing this?

And to answer a few questions, sorry.

1. It is easy I guess. If you have ever made a hat, or done fair isle work. Any project is a good project to learn on if you really love the project and are dedicated to finishing it.

2. I'm doing mine on 16" circs.

3. I'm doing mine in Caron Simply Soft, because I had some lime green and black. Use whatever yarn you will like the finished product in. It is all about the final product, and if you hate the feel of RH, you won't want to wear the scarf!

I'm starting this after I finish my current WIPs for my husband.

What's easier, circs or DPNs? I've never used either, but asked for some for Christmas.
