FO-Chunky braided scarf for Mom
I'm still a fairly knitter and new here, but I am thoroughly enjoying reading through the posts and learning all the ins and outs of knitting.

I decided to try something a bit ambitious for me, and it turned out wonderfully. It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. I have so few knitting friends in real life, that I figured I'd post here.

The pattern is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176869
and I used Patons Shetland Chunky High Plains Variegated.

That looks amazing! I know what you mean about not having many knitting friends. I'm always on this site just checking out what people are doing and learning about different problems, solutions and projects.

Great job! It's nice to see a finished project that looks like it was really hard (but wasn't)!
