This scarf got finished last night (after sitting on some books in a bookshelf for over a week, just needing the ends to be weaved in):

Pattern: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html

And the yarn I used (color is "sailor"):  http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Shine_Worsted_Yarn__D5420140.html

The color is a little brighter than in the photos.  And I promised my husband I would post all the pictures (I think he had a little too much fun when I asked him to pose).

It was actually my first scarf to knit, after a year of knitting.  The pattern was really simple and was still good for tv knitting while having enough pattern to keep me interested.  The pictures don't really do the scarf justice for how it kind of rolls around itself when you wear it as a scarf.  And the yarn?  Heaven.  It is mostly cotton (which I love to knit with) but the modal adds an awesome soft touch.

Man, look at that stitch definition! Fantastic work~

I've been meaning to jump on the Clapotis bandwagon, but can't decide on a yarn. Tongue
