Crafting 365/Day 34

Here's the final version of the yellow scarf which I finished today. I used thrift store yarn (80% acrylic and 20% nylon, almost looks like a mohair belend) doubled and it took about 3 skeins which was all I had. I cast on 30 stitches and knitted in stockinette stitch with the first stitch of each row slipped. I think it may have looked better knotted if I hadn't doubled the yarn, but that makes it cozy. I actually like the way it curls up due to the stockinette stitch. Needed on a day like today, even in Arizona where it was cool and rainy.

And as a footnote, here is a treasury my scarf was featured in on December 1st.
