Hey Thanks! that is a cool scarf. Never thought of Martha knitting though. Not sure why she does everything else. :)

I've always liked her stuff. She uses everyday materials, and makes very nice things.
Good businesswoman, too, even though she got caught doing something that probably everyone else does. She got caught.

That scarf is an easy pattern. I'm knitting it up right now, using Debbie Mumm's traditions yellow yarn. The yarn is super soft, and tends to bunch up if you knit too fast, but, the color gradient is just lovely.
Worth hassling with the yarn bunches.
