Most of my projects are Lindsay Henricks' Uncle Argle Scarves from Son of Stitch and Bitch. I like them because they are simple, two-color reversible scarves. They are warm and stylish!

I took the basic double knit idea and created different designs for friends and family. I haven't posted enough to upload images, but here are some links! I'm working on scanning in my patterns. They're kind of fun, so I thought I'd share.

The snowflake was actually really difficult; that was my first time double knitting. I found that blocky, easy to see shapes (like the whale) were much easier to do than trying to remember where you are in the pattern on two snowflakes at once.
Glad you like them!
