I have only ever completed 3 fru-fru scarves for some kids, this is my first wool/functional one.

Plymouth Yukon Print - 35% Mohair/35% Wool/30% Acrylic; Color #2001

The photos are all from at night but this pick shows the true color:

THe next night with added fringe (used SnB book to figure it out)

it's done in a k1p1 rib, my own "design" lol so it shrinks in on itself (you can't even see the purl rows) and it's done on 19's to make it nice and stretchy/fluffy. Not to thick or heavy.

Just for fun, the cutest face you ever saw:

those are beautiful colours!  i'm wanting to knit myself a nice scarf and i think i'd like to use a yarn like this one.  How much did it cost?

mmm I can't remmeber I think it was mid range, plymouth tends to be considered a nice yarn, not cheap, but not insane. I got two skeins. They may have been  7 or 8 each?? hard to recall..

Really beautiful work! I love your yarn, the fringe, your sweet pup and the k1p1 pattern. It's simple but always so lovely for a scarf (and warm too--the ribbing is nice and dense). Enjoy!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, nice knitting - now tell me about the pupster!  Wink S/he looks maybe like a Belgian?

I love the blaze down his nose - looks like Black Beauty!
