You can tell when I am homebound because of snow and cold. I knit like a madman! I made a cowl out of a Berroco yarn similar to the scarf I made. It's a bulkier weight, so I used US10 needles and, again like the scarf, I simply did a 2x2 rib. Ken, I used the miraculous bind off you mentioned and it worked well. I still get a bit of a fluted and, but that's probably because there is so much yarn to work with. It's got a greener metallic tinge to it, but it will go well as extra protection to the wicked cold we are having this winter. The one picture looks like I am being swallowed up by something, but I wanted it tall and then spread out at the bottom to make up from where the scarf sometimes bunches up in back.
Again, Lou, thanks for the yarn. It was like knitting with butter...so supple and easy to work with.
