I've been playing with combining fibers for a funky look - one of my favorite things to do. I grabbed 10 different yarns that I thought complimented each other and started putting them in order. Both of these were on 10.5 needles with about 175 stitches lengthwise. I did 2 rows of each color up to the middle, then faded back out fora mirror effect. These were Jan birthday gifts:

This one is for my DD from Misti Chunky Baby Alpaca:

I played and played with different stitches for this scarf. I ended up doing a 1x1 rib, but instead of a regular knit stitch I knit into the stitch below on every row.

Wowowow! :cheering: I love all of them but I especially love the first one with all those nice colors. xD I never have the patience to cast on more than 100 stitches. :yay: :D
