Here's a picture of my WIP, a scarf for my mother. She's been ill and I hope this will cheer her up.

"Besotted", this is a very symbolic scarf...red for love, the design in x's & o's for hugs & kisses....your Mom will love it!

It looks great! I've been thinking about making one of those for my grandmother for Christmas. The red looks really good

Thank you. Yes, I did try to make it really symbolic! But kind of fun, too , hopefully. The pattern is from Hello Yarn, the same place as the Irish Hiking Scarf. They have some cute things.

I am just not sure whether to put fringe on it or not.

I'm currently knitting this same scarf (however, I'm using Caron's Simply Soft) and I keep finding myself getting lost in the pattern. I feel like I take 2 steps forward and 4 steps backward. At this rate I'll be finished by Easter...

Thanks everyone, for the kind words! I'm about 2/3 of the way through. It's turning out a little bit heavy (probably should have done 3 rows instead of 4) but by golly, it will be warm! :mrgreen:

When I first saw your scarf, I thought how pretty it was and what a great job, then I thought "how cute, it looks like it could be x's and o's for hugs and kisses". Well duh...it is! LOL
I hope your Mom is doing better..

I dont understand the pattern because of the RS and WS stuff what does that mean ? I have knitted and purled before thats no biggie but this kind of confuses me

RS = right side (of your work)
WS = wrong side (of your work)

Love how it's turning out and in that beautiful red color too!! You'll have to let us know her reaction - she's going to be so thrilled!
