I haven't seen very many updates posted for the Scarf Exchange, so I thought that I'd post one.
I'm not as far along with it as I want to or should be. I'll just say that between what has and hasn't been going on in my life, motivation and confidence are sorely lacking. I have about 11" of the requested minimum 72" completed.
After looking at a lot of yarns, I finally decided on Cascade 220 in a wonderful heather called Pumpkin Spice (#2453). I couldn't find a pattern that screamed "knit me" so I took ideas from a few other scarves and a sweater and designed my own. I tried to make the wrong side look less like the "wrong" side and more just like the "other" side. I don't want to spoil the surprise for my spoilee so I'll just post links to the photos for those who want to see them.
