I knitted a scarf for my Nan for Christmas, it is only the second time I've finish a scarf. I took several pictures of the finished scarf, including pictures of the blocking process, and one of me wearing the scarf before I wrapped it. Unfortunately though, I seem to have lost the pictures I took, and I need to sort out my picture storage.
I do, however, have an in-progress picture.
The scarf used the basketweave knit stitch pattern. It was knit on 5mm needles (I think.. might have been 5.5mm) and I used stylecraft special DK in plum. It took just over 1 skein as I made it quite thick and it is long enough to wrap once around the neck, with the ends both forward.
