I just finished this scarf for a Xmas present. The pattern is listed on this site under the pattern section. This scarf is 100% bulky wool with 11 needles. Now I have started that SnB alien illusion scarf but I can tell that it going to take awhile.

could be brown... looking at it again I am thinking that it is less green than what I thought before. My monitor color was off this morning thanks to my little man so that might have been it.

What color is it really? :roflhard:

Otherwise beautiful!!

How funny -- on my monitor it looks dark grey.

Well, whatever the color, it's a gorgeous scarf!

Gorgeous gray scarf! :)

Thanks! It's an ususual color. It also looks different to me at times. The more light on it, the more green. It's actually a dark green. I washed it carefully after knitting and it became sooooo soft. I made it for a lifetime male friend of ours. I keep thinking that I might tell him that if he doesn't care for it or does not like scarfs to feel comfortable telling me so I can make something else for him that he would enjoy. Then I would know that the gift will be used and enjoyed. I would hate for it to gather dust in the back of the closet. Would that be rude?

Great job on it!!! :happydance: :thumbsup:

Very nice work! I love cabled scarves. And that color is really neat-- I love that it sort of changes colors!

Yeah, tell him that if scarves aren't his thing you can make something that is--he might appreciate that! There's always the risk that he'll take it just to be nice, but it's worth a try asking.

- but I have to ask, what yarn did you use??

Sorry, but I didn't see this. I thought I had the flu but ended being diagnosed with pneumonia so I've not been on line in a few days. I also havn't been knitting either. The yarn that I used was Paton's Upcountry (100% wool) that I ordered from Elann's. They don't have it anymore so I don't know if it is still available or not.
