Thanks to Sam and Anne for helping me just knit rather than stress over complexities and for spurring me into the world of self-photography, I present my FO!
This is a great scarf an easy pattern from The Knitting Experience: Book 1 by Sally Melville. I needed something simple with some panache and this suited the bill. For those not able to view the link, the scarf is knit so to be wider in the neck area where I like coverage and thinner at the ends so there is less bulk. If you need a simple project with elegant style this is it!
