A little belated but here is the Danica scarf (pattern on Knitty) that I made for my dad for Christmas. It's made from Sirdar Chunky with Wool. My dad only tucks scarves into his coat so i didn't make it massively long. I used a little under two balls in each colour.

The whole thing:

and a close-up of the entrelec:

Thanks for looking  Cheesy

OOOh, that's really pretty - in a manly way.... Must have missed that issue of knitty *leaves to hunt down pattern*

gah lovely.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
