For no apparent reason, last night I pulled out a pattern for a mobius scarf that I had printed off ages ago. If you are interested, it was from Episode DKNG-406 of "Knitty Gritty" on the DIY Network (back when it had a variety of programing, not just interior decorating, but that is another story).
The project requires 48 inch long circular needles, but luckily, I had ordered them way back when I printed the pattern. I went digging through my drawer of "good yarn" to see if I had anything suitable. I found an interesting yarn named "Acapulco", a blend of wool, acrylic, and viscose (?)
THEN I read through the pattern and didn't quite understand the cast-on method. Youtube fixed me right up. I looked up Cat Bordhi, the knitter featured in the TV episode and watched her. Easy as pie, once you saw it done. So I got started and it was instantly addictive. I already have yarn chosen for a second project. This one is less than half done, but I have enough to show you.
I tried to stretch the side a bit so the pattern can be seen.
We're off to the quilt show tomorrow, so I'll take the knitting along for the motel room.
