This is a bias knit scarf that started out being for my mother but once she told me she was unlikely to wear it, came to be for my friend .who really appreciates these kinds of things (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=19311&highlight=appreciated). It was knit always holding two strands of yarn together. Either two strands of the angora blend, two strands of the metalic ribbon, or one strand of each. The angora blend is Louisa Harding Kimono Pure and the metallic thing is Plymouth 24K. Umm, never mind the uneveness. :shifty: I seemed to have decreased without increasing a couple of times towards the middle. Luckily it's a scarf and so not terribly important. This one is going off to Korea. I'm still making her the shrug, btw, and am 3/5 through the body (btw, that Caron pattern definitely takes more than 3 skeins for the smaller size), but will save that for her bday in March.

Wow, I love it! Especially the diagonal stripes. I never even learned how to change colors on a scarf... :shrug:
