These were knit up for my favourite set of twins in the whole wide world ever... for Christmas.
I'm sure it's nothing new to anybody around here, but as my knitting accomplishments include garter stitch scarves and one ginourmous calorimetry that helped me master switching back and forth between knit and purl stitches, this was really exciting for me to accomplish!  (And it's always amusing to give one to somebody and watch them freak out in excitement once you reveal the pattern...)

First was this one, because I was chatting with some friends about my short attention span with failed attempts and more complicated knitting and said "now I'm pondering skull intarsia."  The immediate response was "ILLUSION SCARF!!" and I was given patterns with which to try.  And so became skull scarf!
For the boy who deserves a million skulls on every article of clothing he owns, and I mean that in the best possible way.  From this pattern.  I suffered some confusion when it came to turning the chart around and working back up, but I managed to try a few things and figure it out all by myself!  So proud!

Next came robot scarf from this pattern.  I changed the pattern just a teensy bit to make it a quicker knit, and axed the "I" in the middle for time and length reasons.

I don't knit tight enough for the image to pop out as easily as it's "supposed to," I guess, but it still works.  Everybody kept commenting "gosh, you can see the picture so much easier on the other side!" *facepalm*
And now that I know the trick to it, there's no stopping me from knitting scarves with swear words puppies hidden in them!
