I'm in hob! Scarfs are actually one of my first knitting loves, for all the reasons you mentioned.
And my DD, who does such nice things for me, just asked me this weekend, if I would knit a scarf for her new Grandmother-in-law (is there such a thing? you know, her new hubby's grandmother). So how could I say no.
Apparently Grandmom greatly admired a scarf DD was wearing I had made so she would like to give her one for Christmas. I offered to teach DD to knit but so far she hasn't taken me up on it

It will be a cable pattern, maybe the same one I made before but we need to shop for yarn so it may take me a few days to get moving on it but I'll join. I'd love to see scarfs everyone is working on too.

I'm in too, I'm currently working on two scarves with another one planned as soon as I finish one of the others. I like scarves. I wear them in the lecture halls at Uni - its cold in there!!!

I am in! I have always wanted to be part of a KAL!

I am currently working on the Irish Hiking Scarf. I cast on this weekend, and only get to work on it after 11pm. From 8-11 I have to make sure I am working on the baby blanket I am making, coz it needs to be done by the baby shower Sept 2nd.

I have so many scarves I want to make this fall tho, now that I can do lace and cable and I want to learn all the variations in between.

I love cables too and just made my first lace scarf this summer Krystal. One of the next ones I wnat to do is the Irish Hiking Scarf or maybe the one Silver just posted that is based on it, but reversible.

I'm excited to get going, just have to decide what scarf first. To complicate matters I just bought a single skein of Malabrigo and am looking for a pattern that will work with the yardage in just 1 skein (215yds.) I know, I know, 1 skein! What was I thinking?? Any ideas. I think cables typically require more yarn so I may have to do something else.

Anyway, here's a pic of my Branching Out scarf, my forst lace project.
My photography is not the most cretive but I really enjoyed this scarf.

I am going to do this. I need the inspiration to knit a scarf that I promised my friend. I am making a simple one of the chicago bears colors.

Well I made a little graphic for the KAL if anyone wants to use it. I was all excited to finally be part of a KAL I just had to have a graphic for my sig. ha.



Here are some progress pics of my Irish Hiking Scarf. I am using Knit Picks Shine Sport. I will most likely make this scarf again in a more cable friendly yarn. This yarn doesn't hide them, but it also doesn't showcase them very well.

I'm in
I'm currently knitting a scarf using my yummy malabrigo. I borrowed this pattern from another poster. It's called the Rainy Day scarf. It's soooo pretty. I'll try to post pictures of my progress later this afternoon. I've knitted about 3 1/2inches of it already and it's coming out pretty nice. The pattern sort of has a "mini cable" look which is making the scarf that much prettier...

I'm in as well. At the moment I'm knitting a garter stitch scarf with novelty yarn. You'd think that's easy, but my lack of swatching made me frog the thing twice, which is NOT easy with this yarn. I'm going to cast on again today and show you soon.
