This first scarf most people in the doubleknitting KAL have seen.  It was my first doubleknit project, and turned out very nice.  The random pattern in the middle was where I got bored and decided to improvise.


This next one I made for my brother.  The space invaders aren't typical invaders because I patterned it after a hat he owns.  I think he found the hat at a thrift store somewhere.  I basically copied the pattern and colours from there, except for the one bottom bit....I was knitting it away from home and kinda ran out of blue yarn, so I made a little picture of my brother instead  Tongue

Hey, I already saw your first scarf at the double knit along. You finished it so fast!
About the other one (I have only finished knitting one scarf in my life, and I'm busy with a double knitting one), how on earth do you knit with that many colors? It turned out really cool, very neat knitting.

That is totally amazing! It looks like you got just the right blue for the black mage scarf. Where did you find the chart for him? My DH would love  a scarf like that!

Awesome, especially the black mage one. I hope you don't mind me asking, but where does everyone manage to find all these whatever bit images of old video game charactes to convert to knitting and other crafts?
