I finally finished my last unfinished knitting project, this scarf with two O Rly owls on it. It’s for my friend Justin, who asked for it special. One end says “O Rly?” and other other, “Ya Rly.” Because I hate the way carried-yarn patterns have a front and back, I tried to weave the carried yarn through the knit-1-purl-1 pattern of the scarf, but I’m not quite happy with it. Sure, the image has no front and back now (except the readability of the text), but it’s a bit dense, not stretchy, and slow-going. I made a pattern you can download, as well, if you want to make it. – Link.
