I now know why I saw so many women in Seattle last week wearing scarves without coats.  This is a trend I wasn’t familiar with.  However, I finished my scarf and blocked it yesterday, so of course I had to wear it all day today.  And boy, it does make a difference!  It kept me nice and warm when a jacket would have been a bit too much.

And here’s a close-up of the stitchwork:

Obviously, I came up with a solution for the edging.  It’s a simple border of chain stitches, six between each loop.  I’m really happy with how it came out.  So happy, in fact, that I think I’ve found my new favorite souvenir.  A scarf from every trip…why not?

I did enter it in the Make It Pink challenge as well, so there’s a dollar for Susan G. Komen.  If you’re crafty, whip up something pink to support the cause!
