So I have this boy... who is going to Chicago for the US of A's Thanksgiving at the end of November, and of course, being the "windy city", he thinks it would be wise to have a scarf to take with him... and who better to ask, than the girl friend who knits!

I didn't really choose a specific pattern.  However, this scarf is my inspiration:

I am casting on/binding off/doing the edges with this pattern:

Otherwise, I have a book full of Cable and Aran patterns that I have selected the proper cable pattern from.

I'm using some Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds yarn in an "Earthy Brown".

I'm just casting on tonight!

So... since it's that time of the year, I thought I might as well open this up to anyone else who's getting into some fall/winter projects, and getting a head start on their scarves for the season!  Anyone, with any scarf sort of pattern is more than welcome to join in.  I'll post pictures of my first night's work in a few hours, before bed.

Even if it was, though, I wouldn't let you go--you could run, run, run, run but I will follow close.

Awesome, awesome, awesome, fashionzombie!

Here are pictures of my scarf, so far (sorry, I forgot to post them the first night!):






The last picture is a shot of my ridiculous center-pull ball of yarn!!  I am so incredibly upset with it!  It's a total disaster.  I feel like I've spent more of my time untangling that mess, than actually knitting.  It's making me so frustrated, and I honestly don't know what to do with it.  Has anyone managed to get out of a problem like that, before?  It's diving me crazy.   Sad

As for the scarf itself, though... I'm excited about the way it's coming out!  You can see the diamond is just starting to move back inwards.  I think it will be beautiful when it's finished.  I'll have to block it for sure, though... that's why I pinned it to my bed for the picture; it curls up a little.

center-pull balls that go awry usually take me several hours to untangle, but I usually take a day off from knitting and plow through it.

Yikes... I'm not looking forward to it, too much...  Sad

Update: So... it took me about half an hour or forty-five minutes (almost half of a movie), to untangle my ugly skein of disaster, and re-wind it.  I had such a busy week that I didn't work on it.  So I guess I'm only about six or seven rows ahead of where I was last week.

I have to crack the whip on this project, if I want to send it out by mid-November!!

Haha, that's such a cute, unique idea for a scarf!  Did it take long to make?

No, not at all.

It's just casting on and off.

I cast on 18st and knit 6 rows, cast off 14 and knit another 3 rows then cast back on another 14st (to get me back to 18 st) and kept going until my scarf was long enough.

I've got a skinny pink one too that I did on small needles!

Well it's a really creative idea!  Was there anything that inspired you to make a scarf like that?

Had seen something similar in a book (can't remember it's name though!) but thought it would look better on a bigger scale.

Much better than a straight edged scarf!
