well, it was snowing today.  And here, it's not spring yet.  We're still under that icy wind coming down from Chicago.

Anyway, the point is that I am sick to death of my 10 foot long recycled sari silk scarf because it gets shut in doors and it is too narrow, leaving half my throat exposed, and keeps getting its tassels tangled in my chair at work.

So, I bought some roving (urban collection, in Falkland) from beemiceelf on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5656087
spun it up into sport weight to fingerling weight yarn (you know, based on my mood at the time)
Then I knit it up, without setting the twist, in something resembling this pattern: http://www.ilgaleja.com/free_pattern.html

though I did not knit in the round, I just cast on a ton of stitches on a circular needle and knit back and forth.  And after an inch or so, I didn't think I had enough stitches, so I cast on more as I went... then when I got to the green side, I did some short row shaping to mimic those cast on bits.
