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
and I used Patons Shetland Chunky High Plains Variegated.

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