Anybody knit anything from this book (http://www.amazon.com/Knitting-New-Scarves-Distinctly-Designs/dp/1584796332/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1244124958&sr=8-1)?

I saw this scarf (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2251/2080400086_9d0652eb51.jpg?v=0)at my LYS and was so fascinated I had to give it a try. Wow! Talk about stretching your brain! I'm about 6 inches in and am finally feeling more comfortable with the pattern. I can't figure out how anybody would be able to design such a thing!

But it's definitely cute and a fun challenge after a few mindless projects.

Every time i knit a scarf, i swear it will be my last.. but i bought Knitting New Scarves last year.. I LOVE the ideas.. I love the scarves.. ( i am half way through a version of the black purl scarf.. I am knitting it in Patons Bamboo silk (black, naturally!) and stuffing it with polyfil, not roving..

And i love the drifted pleats.. (i have some silk.. and one day..)

Its a great book, and its filled with great scarves!

Wow I almost bought the book, when I remembered that everytime I order with amazon I have to pay extra...

Otherwise I would have gotten it.
