I'm in San Francisco..........California CAN get cold (and it has this winter).

I know we (ME) are wimps since our we're spoiled most of the time. But this has been the coldest winter I can remember in many yrs.

It was -22 one morning and I decided I would wear the scarf no matter what it looks like. And one person actually gave me a compliment , so that variegated color worked like a charm!

Now that I'm getting my "knitting legs" I am a little pickier about how stuff turns out.
I just reread these posts and realized I omited something important. I used two colors of yarn, blue yarn and white yarn, and worked two rows with each color. My mistakes showed up better than when I just used one color. Variegated yarn on the other hand helps disguise uneven stitches and things. Sorry for not being clear before.

Oh come on, who LIKES weaving in ends?
