I guess I would have to call this my Olympic knitting project as 90% of it has been knit while watching the Olympics. I have noticed there is a lot of lull to the games, and I have plenty of time between the moments of action to get in a few rows here and there.
Neither of these photos shows off the color of this beautiful yarn -- Rowan's Kidsilk Haze in shade 596, Marmalade. It has a nice pumpkin-y warmth in person and thus the name -- the Pumpkin Ridge Scarf. The yarn has so much personality on it's own that I decided on a simple k2p2 ribbing rather than some fancy lace pattern. Besides, when it comes to clothing, my style is very simple (although colorful) and I figured this scarf would get more use than something fancy and lacy. If you have a couple of spare balls of Kidsilk Haze laying about, I highly recommend that you make one for yourself:
Pumpkin Ridge Scarf
2 skeins Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Size 6US Knitting Needles
Cast on 56 stitches.
For every row, k2p2 to end.
Bind off (using a tubular bind-off if you are feeling fancy).
