FO Friday, First Project of the Year

I finished the scarf [link].

It’s shorter than I thought it would be; I knit the scarf lengthwise because I’d already cast on 130 stitches, and I didn’t want to tear back, then cast the scarf back on again.  I knit it on size 11 circular needles, with a 2×2 ribbed pattern.  There were two rows where I dropped stitches, and I learned that I can’t drop purled stitches nearly as well as I can knitted stitches; I kept losing track of if I’d done a yarn over or not, so the second row of dropped stitches isn’t even.  I’m okay with that, to be honest.

Once I got used to working with the thick/thin yarn, I enjoyed working with it, I also loved the long color changes.  I have some leftover green yarn from this project, but right now I’m not sure what to do with it.  I think this yarn works best in a simple pastern like this, which shows off both the texture and the color changes.

The scarf is really warm and soft, though if I had to knit it again, I’d knit it width-wise rather than lengthwise, so I’d know how long the scarf was.
