Will Knit For Food

I've been working on a book about how I went from homeless to knitting teddy bears to get myself up and taken care of. It still boggles my mind that I was able to actually make that happen, but had it not been for fellas like you, I wouldn't have been able to even feed myself.
So, take a peek at the photo, its the one I'll be using for the cover of the book. And if you'd like to know more:

Men's long Johns or Thermal Underwear.

I have been knitting for years and My brothers and father both love to hunt. Every year they go and put on several layers of cloths and get into their gear and go out hunting. One day my brother Shaun came to me and asked me if I could knit him a pair of men's long Johns.

I-cord & Scarf Border

I am going to be making a scarf of some design or another, but if I choose to stay with stockinette stitch, I will need to put a border at both ends and the sides to avoid curling. I recently read that someone put an i-cord on the sides but didn't indicate if that would stop the curling. I'm thinking it won't because the tension on the front and back will be different, thus the curling.
