ON KungFu scarf
My son is very much into KungFu--learning and teaching--so I wanted to make him something that involved that. He gave the boys shirts that had YinYangs and Mantis on them, so I started a scarf in the round with a mantis on one side and the yin yang on the other. I'll do the same on the other end. I didn't knit the intarsia in the round, I just joined when I finished the motifs.

It's a little bumpy, but I haven't done any adjusting on the back, yet.

It's made with Plymouth Encore dk.

OK - I dont know WHERE my head is this mornin, but the first time I read that, it said "YinYang on one side and MARTINIS on the other". I looked at the scarf (AWESOME, btw!) and was like "What the h-e-double-hockeysticks kind of martinis is SHE drinkin???" :rollseyes:

Actually, I think the question should be what kind of martinis were YOU drinking!
